In 2.4 and 3.0Beta it appears that you can only have one Grid type subform. 
This is a real shortcoming as you may well be referencing multiple tables with 
multiple returns in a single form.

putting back into pool

It is well possible to have multiple sub forms for a form, and you can put
arbitrary controls (including grids) into any sub form. If this doesn't work for
the submitter, we need more investigations on the cause.

fs->osavill: Please elaborate what you do exactly, I suspect this is more a
support issue than a bug.

Sorry, I should have been clearer. Using the Form Wizard it is only possible to
put one sub form in place. 

I then found it hideously complicated to add a further sub form that actually
did anything. I managed to add a subform but with only simple text boxes and
these wouldn't dynamically update. So basically as you progressed through the
database the wizard created sub form updated but the manually added one didn't.
What I was after was two grid subform dynamically updating from different tables
based on their own queries. This is pretty easy to do in Access. 

It is quite likely that the sub form creation steps I took were wrong but then
the bugs are a) the documentation is not clear and b) the toolset to add further
sub forms is lacking. It should be very easy to add a further sub form as
functional as the one created by the wizard.
