SYMPTOMS

You will not be able to use the CTRL+SHIFT+HOME key combination to move from a subform to the first record on the main form if you have moved to any control on the subform with a mouse click.

CAUSE

When you select a control on a subform with a mouse click, you change Microsoft Access to edit mode. Edit mode has a different keyboard definition than when you are navigating records. Note that using the TAB key to move to a control on a subform does not change Microsoft Access to edit mode.

RESOLUTION

Click the record selector button in the subform to move to the next record. This will cause Microsoft Access to switch out of edit mode, and you will be able to use the CTRL+SHIFT+HOME key combination to move to the first field on the main form.
