    Access 2013 - need help transferring before update event in form to its subform version

    Hello folks,

    New member, first post.

    I have created a macro in my access 2013 form before update event to log the last touch user and last touch date if a record is edited and saved. This is done successfully when it is a form.

    When I use that form as a subform, it loses its ability to do this function and I can see no option in creating a before event macro for a subform, and it apparently does not transfer its before update ability to the subform version.

    Any advice on how to fix this?

    Appreciate the help and advice.

    The Before Update event is part of the form itself, and should operate whether the form is opened directly or as a subform. There are no events on a subform control (other than Enter/Exit).
