I have a form that has a dat grid on it with a lot of information. When you select any row a second form comes up and allows you to make changes to the form. Once they hit updat I would like the data grid on the first form to be updated with the new data. I have the data grid code in a function call and it works fine. Please help.

Thanks

When you are opening the "Update" form, how are you passing the row information to the form?  Are you sending the values of the each of the row cells, or are you passing the dataset/datatable/datarow?

I am passing the identyfing information and performing another qury he second form because there is more data then on the data grid that I am trying to display here. The first form while large is a summary of sorts.

A few more questions:
-Does the update form need to stay open, and by this, does the user need to be able to change something, hit Update, change something, hit Update again, etc?
-Are you looking to refresh the entire grid, or just the row that was updated?

The entire grid would be ok. The 1st form is staying open I am showing the 2nd form in a show dialog.  THey will choose a row in the data grid the 2nd form is shown with all the information in it. They would make their changes hit update and the 2nd form would close and the data grid would be updated.

Sounds easy enough :).  Which part are you missing?  

-------------Datagrid Form---------------
    Private Sub DataGrid1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.Click
        dim frmUpdateForm as New UpdateForm(value, value, ...)
        frmUpdateForm.ShowDialog()

        'Upon reaching here, the Update form has been "closed", so refresh the grid
        RefreshDataGrid()
    End Sub

    Private Sub RefreshDataGrid()
      'Code to populate the Datagrid
    End Sub
-------------------------------------------

-------------Update Form---------------
    Private Sub btnUpdate_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnUpdate.Click
        'Database update code here

        Me.Hide()
    End Sub
-------------------------------------------
