How to make my print preview button refresh my form?

How to make my print preview button refresh my form?

Is it possible to add something to the VB side of my "print preview" command button to have it refresh the screen before it goes to print preview mode? This way I do not have to have the user click "Refresh" before they hit "Print Preview"?


RE: How to make my print preview button refresh my form?

I figured it out on my own (which is a suprise), for anyone wanting to know how, add the following code inside your print preview code.

DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, 5, , acMenuVer70

Here is what the full code example will look like.

Private Sub btn_openreport_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_btn_openreport_Click

    Dim stDocName As String
    DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, 5, , acMenuVer70
    stDocName = "Account Inquiry"
    DoCmd.OpenReport "account inquiry", acPreview, , "[ID] = " & Me.ID

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_btn_openreport_Click
End Sub

Slowly but surely, I am learning . . .
