Report.Parent Property

Office 2007

Syntax

expression.Parent

expression   A variable that represents a Report object.

Remarks

You can use the Parent property to determine which form or report is currently the parent when you have a subform or subreport that has been inserted in multiple forms or reports.

For example, you might insert an OrderDetails subform into both a form and a report. The following example uses the Parent property to refer to the OrderID field, which is present on the main form and report. You can enter this expression in a bound control on the subform.
