Card within a card (or subforms)

Frank's idea of a background on several cards is the good base-line 
solution.  It requires that all instances of that subform be in the 
same position and only in that form.

Jonathan's approach gives more flexibility in multiple subforms in the 
same form.  It might run into problems when windows are dragged, 
causing a subform to chase after a form.  It might be best for kiosks 
and similar applications.

Another approach is to use several groups of which only one is visible.

Another is to update data based on a control.

You can mix and match these.

It might be fun to dream about asking for a control which is a view 
into a stack.
