How can I make thhis code update the form?

Hi,

I found this module and I implemented i my project and it's doing just what I needed with one exception. Once the user click on the company name I need the form to refresh with all of the company information.

The text box and list box are located in the form header the form name is COMPANYINFO.

Please help

Here is a good rule of thumb, do not use someone elses
code if you do not know how it works.

how about trying doing this on the form you want to update.
After calling the function,

me.requery
me.refresh
0
 
rcleonAuthor Commented:
OK got the message and You are right but I'm desperated for an answer.

So where in the form do I place requery and refresh comand? Do I place that inside the module?

Thanks

Hi rcleon,

Go to the properties of the field where the company name is,
go to On Click, press on the little triangle on the right, and select [Event Procedure], then press on the button with 3 dots next to the little triangle,
this will take you to VB editor,
there type

Refresh

Hope this helps

Is your Form Source Record is a Table or a Query(or SQL)?

if it was a Table, then do like I told you earlier,
if it was a Query (or SQL), the write this instead of what I told you:
YourFormNam.Requery

After you call your 2 functions that you have, do the requery and refresh.

Jaffer

Here it is

Private Sub txtCompany Name_Click()
Me.Requery
Me.Refresh
End Sub

Yes the Form Record Source is a table.

Why not place this code on the text box where the info get updated?

There is a text box that is tide to a list box went I start typing on the text box the list box scroll then I click on the list box for the record I need this updates the text box I was originaly typing. Once this text box is update with the complete information then it should refresh the form.

Your are right, you can do that too.

1-
Lets make sure everything is OK, before you click on the company name, go to the menu>records>refresh and see if it refreshes the values.
2-
you don't need bothe the Refresh and the Requery, you choose either.

Your problem is that, your txtSearchReportNumber is a 6 digit field, where as your txtReportNumber is nn-nnnn-nn
so here what I did was to convert your txtSearchReportNumber to txtReportNumber  format

Private Sub txtSearchReportNumber_LostFocus()
    [txtReportNumber] = Left([txtSearchReportNumber], 2) & "-" & Mid([txtSearchReportNumber], 3, 4) & "-" & Right([txtSearchReportNumber], 2)
End Sub

I hope this is what you were looking fpr.
