How do I refresh data imported from a service without closing and reopening my access file

This is the setup I have:
One MS-SQL 7 database exporting data to my access file through a service every 2 minutes.  But if my access file is opened and data is exported to it, then I need to close and reopen my access file in order to view the newly exported data.

Thus, my question is how can I refresh my access file with the newly exported data without having to close and reopen it?

There is a Refresh Method built into Access, it is collection.refresh
The problem is it will only work on things like tables and forms, not recordsets or databases.
There is also a requery method with the same basic syntax.
To expand on my earlier comment: it really depends on what you want to refresh and if it is a multiuser environment.
if you are using an ADO recordset, there is a requery method of the ado recordset object.


Yes, that is the requery method I referred to in my first comment.
