Default How to add record in Subform which is in another Subform

First, those are VBA procedures, not macros.

Why are you adding a new record to another subform? Why not go to that
subform to add the record, since you need to go there anyhow to enter data?

Maybe you could do something like this from SubB:


This syntax is incorrect on several levels:

The hierarchy is Main SubB SubA (where SubA is a subform on SubB). The
fully qualified syntax would be:


From the main form you could do:




However, from SubB the syntax I provided initially should work, since SubA is
a subform control on SubB.

Hi all, I have Subform "SubA" on another Subform "SubB". And "SubB"
is on Form called "Main". On "SubB" I have button called "Add New
Record" and I got macro (see below) on this button's click event.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
End Sub

When I open Form "SubB" and click button, macro works but when I open
Form "Main" and click button which is showing in "SubB" subform,
don’t work. I tried below macro but I don’t work

Private Sub Command1_Click()
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
End Sub
