Thank you! Thank you! I just finished reading this document, which was part of a link in the recent Buzz newsletter. I have printed it for others to read, especially those skeptical on the powers of Access and its capabilities.

The Parent Operator

Provided by: FMS Development Team

If you are writing code in a subform or subreport, use the Parent operator to refer to a control on the Main (Parent) form or report. For example:

Use            : Parent!cboStateLocation
Instead of   : Forms!FrmLocation!cboStateLocation

If the form or report is renamed, the Parent operator protects you from any errors occurring.
