How do I see new data immediately in a form ?

How do I see new data immediately in a form ?

How do I see new data immediately in a form ?


I have a form called "CustInquiry" that has a Tab Control with 2 pages in it.  One for "InquiryStatus"--schedule, another for "InquiryDetails"--data entry.  
After I enter data to "InquiryDetails, schedule shows up to "InquiryStatus".

However, the data that I just entered to "InquiryDetails" doesn't show up immediately from "InquiryStatus".  

I have to close the form "CustInquiry" and reopen it...then new data shows up "InquiryStatus".

How do I see data that I just entered immediately from a form without close the form ?   

I'm using subform in "InquiryStatus" and Record source from "query" that I created.  

RE: How do I see new data immediately in a form ?

Have you tried the classical methods ?
RecordSource = RecordSource

Hope This Helps, PH.

RE: How do I see new data immediately in a form ?

In the AfterUpdate event of the InquiryDetails subform (is there a subform on that page?), tell the parent form to requery the status subform:


Private Sub Form_AfterUpdate()
End Sub
*** If you use the Refresh action, any new records won't show up and deleted records won't disappear.
