Default Sub Form Input

I created a form with several subforms. To get the visual placement I wanted,
I split up some of the fields into several subforms (fields from the same
table). Now when data is entered, data from one subform is inputted onto one
line in the table, then when data is entered into another subform on the same
form (from the same table) data is inputted onto another line in the table.

Is there a way to get all the data from the separate subforms (from one
table) on one form to enter onto one line in the table?

OR is there another way to place fields of a subform onto a form so I can
move the subform fields to where I want them?

Use a Single Form or Continuous Form view on the subform rather than
the default Datasheet view, and arrange the fields into some suitable
arrangement on the screen, rather than using separate subforms.

Hi John,

I'm still not getting the flexibility I'd like. Is there a way to make the
background of a subform transparent so I can do some fancy aligining?

I don't know; I've never needed to do so, and have no clue what kind
of fancy aligning you want to do, or how a transparent background
would help.

Might a Tab Control help with arranging screen real estate?

I'm not sure if tab control would help. I think I'm going to work on
redesigning the form.

Thanks for your comments!
