    Subform (A2k)

    I was showing someone my database when I hit a strange keyboard combination (Can't remember what it was) and my subforms on main changed to what looked like Excel pages with tabs at the bottom.

    I quickly closed the database and restarted it to proceed with the demonstration, not taking too much notice of what had happened.

    Does anyone know what caused this and if so, prevent it from happening in the future !!

    Did you perhaps happen to press Ctrl+Comma or Ctrl+Period? This will switch between views (Form view, Datasheet view, ...)

    I really can't remeber Hans, but it didn't look like a datasheet !

    I think I've seen something like it before with "And/Or"?? on the tabs, Boolean controls perhaps !!

    Ah, that's the Filter by Form window (choose Records | Filter | Filter by Form). You can use it to set criteria to filter the data on, then click the Apply filter button. Just close it to get rid of it if you don't want to apply a filter.
