Description grgsmiths 2016-09-12 22:51:37 UTC
...when creating a subform inside a form which will display the fields of another table there is no Table Element Wizard window for the fields you want to include in the subform table.  

Only way found to add Fields is to select the subform and then use the Add Field icon in the Form Design Toolbar, and drag the field names from the Add Field window to the heading area of the subform...

step by step:
1. Edit form that displays a single table content.
2. Click on "form navigator" => Right click on "main form" => "new" => "Form"
3. Right click on the new form created (inside "form navigator") => "Properties"
4. Then I fill "Content type" with "table", in "content" I choose the table name I want to display, then I click on "link master fields" and choose the fields that relates both tables.
5. And now, having the subform selected, click on "more controls" => "table control" and I create a framework (using the mouse) in order to make the new table fields appear, but.... the wizard that should let you choose the fields you want to include doesn't appear. Instead, there is a Data Spread Sheet form without any fields.

I am using Win10 home 64bit and jdk-8u101-windows-x64  Java and LO v5.2.1.2 64bit

Version 5212 has been superceded by a more recent version. The latest "Still" version is LO 5.2.5.x

The latest "Fresh" version is LO

Please try one of these versions and see if your problem has been resolved in the meantime.
