Forms: Cannot ApplyFilter on SubForm

Author(s)
Dev Ashish

(Q)    I'm trying to restrict the records displayed in a subform by using ApplyFilter on it, but it doesn't work.  What's the right way to do it?

(A)    The proper way is to change the Recordsource of the subform itself.  Using ApplyFilter on the subform will change the main form itself. 

        So either generate the SQL statement dynamically and assign that to the Recordsource of the subform using a syntax like

strSQL="Select * from sometable where"
strSQL=strSQL & " someID=" & me!IDonMainForm
Me!SubFormName.Form.RecordSource=strSQL

or use predefined queries and swap the assigned names using the same syntax as described above.
