Split Form for Linked DBase Table, cannot add to Navigation Form RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have started a Web Database in Access-2010.  I created a "linked" table (linked back to SQL Server database).  I then made "split" form for the records in the "linked" table.  I then created a Navigation form.  I am not allowed to drag/drop (or other methods) the "split" form on to the Navigation form in layout view.  I get the mouse pointer of "circle w/ slash" for "no - cannot do that".

  • split forms cannot be subforms of other forms.  Essentially that is what you are trying to do which may be why it won't allow you to add it.  If you change it to a "normal" form will it allow you to drag/drop?
