We need some more information on how you're working and what msg you got.
I suppose you're working in bound mode and that is some code you alter (or remove) a record. And now you want to update the screen.
Did you really try the from.reqery?
Is this correct?

it will be kind of hard to get people to help you when someone asks a question as Kobe Lenjou did, and instead of answering pointed questions, you simply restate the obvious point of your question, that is in the subject of your post

do you think that we are so dense as to not understand what you are asking, that you have to restate it, or are you so confident in the clearity of your question that you don't bother restating it in a more understable fashion.

I have been programming Access for over a year, and have never experienced the "Restartable" property.  Is this a foreign version that you are using, and it ends up translating into something else that I might know what you mean.

and by the way STOP SHOUTING

Yes I have really tried requery.
I am trying to set the screen update from within the form, does this make a difference?

I'm not sure the difference but in addition to me.requery there is also me.refresh, but I have found that if one doesn't work the other doesn't either, and when that happens, I usually have to requery or refresh a specific control before doing the screen

me.lstboxcontrol.requery
me.refresh

hope this helps, and pardon my synicism with the proper netiquette of caps, sometimes I let that get the better of me
