How in Access can you from a subform call the Form_AfterUpdate of the main form?  I tried
Call frmOrders.Form_AfterUpdate
It did not work.

off the top of my head, try the below syntax:

call me.parent.form.afterupdate

or

call me.parent.form.form_afterupdate

I would suggest that you place this code in a Module so it can be easily called from anywhere.

Firstly, u should delcare the afterupdate function as Public in frmorders :
  public sub AfterUpdate(...)

and then in other forms, call it as :
  Call Form_frmorders.afterUpdate(...)
