I have a student form. Inside that, I want to build a continuous nested subform. So in the first nested subform, we would choose the teachers each student has (anywhere from 1 to 8 teachers using a combo box). In the next nested subform, I want to pick from a combo box what course that teacher is actually teaching. Then another nested subform with the teacher's contact information. We need to track all the contact information for each teacher. I have built a table for the teachers, courseID (departments), the classes (connected to the courseId table, and the contact information. However, I can't seem to get them to work together and use combo boxes for the teacher's name, and the class name like I envision.

Can we get some images of what you're trying to do? Or what you are hoping for it to do? You should be able to do this pretty easily as long as you have the parents and children fields linked in the subform.

This is the student form I put the nested subform into.  The teacher doesn't
show in this view. I want to pick the teacher then pick the course, then the class. Some
teachers have more than one course they teach a student in. Then a contact that list for each teacher has with that student.

This is the nested subform I created.  Not sure what I am doing wrong.

I didn't know if this would help so I sent it too.

Thank you for any help you can provide!

This will not allow me to put the pictures in.  I have sent them in a response but I think it may have been lost.  I'm sure if there is another way I can sent the pictures to you. Please advise. Thank you!

You cant put images in your post.
You need to upload your image separately using the link in the upper right corner of the original post.

What is your subform based off of, is it a query? It looks like if your junction table has all the information in it so you should be able to get what information you need in any order. Top form teachers, subform classes linked to the selected teacher, second subform students linked to the selected students. Are your parent/child fields setup?

Everything is based off the student chart on the Enrollment form.  I haven't built any queries at this point. So I was basing the subforms off the junctions table.  We really don't need the course information as we have 6 basic categories (Bible, history, language, math, science, & electives), however I get the impression I need that to make the connections flow correctly. So I was setting it up with the teacher, connected to the class, then the contact information (this is the critical piece we need for accreditation). The student form is set up as the primary piece for the office. I will add a picture of that form.

I move the nested subform out until I can figure out what I have done wrong.

Try getting it working first as separate forms, then try making the nested subforms one at a time.

I finally got it to work!  Your video Event Enrollment is what helped the most.  Thank you for your help and all the videos!
