When I have a record pulled up on a form I want to have a subtable/form of additional information that is unique to that record. I want to put a button on the first form to open "frmContactInfo" I can't seem to get it to work right. I have a relationship of "tblContactInfo" to "tblProjects" so that the tables are linked. I can get it to work put when I go to a different record and click the button again it pulls up the wrong data.

How can I get it to only pull up the data asscoiated with the first record? It is probably simple but I'm just not getting it.

Thanks, Joe

Hey OBP that looks like a good solution but is there anyway to hide it so it will only come up when I click a commant button? It looks cluttered because I have a lot of stuff in addition to an existing subform that is already there.

Joe the answer is a Tabbed Mainform, you just click the Tab to see the data. Or you could set the form to Visible = "No" then set it to yes to show the form.

OK, Thanks OBP. I think I will just add the subform to the bottom of the existing main form as you first suggested. It's probably the easist way to do this. I tried it and it looks ok, a lot of information but that is what everyone wants to see. Thanks again!
