I may not have enough information, but it sounds like you just need to do the following in the click event of the command button on form2

'whatever code you want to change form1 here

All I did to test, though, was change the caption of a button on form1, and didn't actually need the refresh.  You can end if it you need with a Form1.SetFocus or use the SetActiveWindow API call.

If this isn't what you meant, maybe you could be a little more descriptive, and maybe show some sample code.
