The data objects do not understand a form reference. This is because
they can be used in shared code, like data modules, and so on. A data
object could still be available in memory from a form that was closed
and removed from memory if the code was set up that way, then where you
would be? If you examine them, they do not have a parent property.

If you follow the logic:

    this = rowset
    parent = query object
    parent = form
