Navigating Forms With Subforms

When you are viewing a form that contains a subform, such as the Client form, you can move between the forms using the F5 key and the Esc key. F5 will take you into the subform and pressing F5 again will open the first, highlighted record. Press the Esc key (when the subform is active) and the focus will be returned to the main, outer form.

tip.gif When you first enter a subform, you can immediately begin to type characters in order to search the list of records in the subform. You will notice that the Name heading is active and the characters you type will show up as Collect! scrolls through the list matching your search criteria.
