Microsoft How-To: Removing a Subdatasheet

Subdatasheets are a neat feature added to Access in the 2000 version, but for anyone building applications, especially when deploying over a network, they should probably be turned off. You'll use your own forms instead of this "free" database feature, and they can cost you in terms of performance.
This article shows how to remove them in Access 2007. In 2003 the remove option is under Format/Subdatasheet.
Also see this great UtterAccess post by Crystal at on Subdatasheets, which includes links to articles that discuss the performance issue.
