Hi All!

In a project, I have several forms and at any one time two or more forms can be open. Is there a simple method for refreshing the data on all open forms?

Dim frm As Form

For Each frm In CurrentDb.Forms
   frm.Refresh 'Or use frm.Requery, but this will return the form to the first record. It is required to show newly added records

Hmm, is this an ADP?

Try this:

Dim frm As Object
For Each frm In CurrentProject.AllForms
   If SysCmd(acSysCmdGetObjectState,acForm,frm.Name)<>0 Then frm.Refresh

Does that work?
