I am an access beginner so please excuse simple question.

I can refresh my form data by having a button on the form generated by a wizard. This works fine and has the code:

Private Sub Command12_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command12_Click


    DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, 5, , acMenuVer70

Exit_Command12_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command12_Click:
    MsgBox Err.description
    Resume Exit_Command12_Click
   
End Sub

I want to get the same effect by using code on the enter property of a field so the form is automatically refreshed when the user selects the field.

please could I have the code to do this?

Hi Walt

I have tried this and it does not work.

The button is on the main form and when it is clicked all subforms are refreshed.

The field is in a subform and i want  the data to be refreshed in a further subform which is linked to it.

ie. frm_material_group is the main form, frm_material is the subform with the user field in it which I want toi trigger the refresh and finally frm_material_colur_specific is the subform which needs it data refreshing.

Try:
[Forms]![yourform].[yoursubform].requery   or
me.[Forms]![yourform].[yoursubform].requery

in the OnEnter event of the field
