Default Setfocus from button on Commandbar

I am using a button on a command bar to change a subform on my main form. My problem is that it doesn't set the focus to the subfrom or any control on it. I have tried using setfocus on both the subform and controls on it, no luck.

Please help!

Button is on the main form:
