ADODB Recordset Requery

I have a couple of list boxes, ex. lstActiveUsers that are based on an adodb recordset. When you double click an item in the list, it loads up a form where you can edit the details of the contents in the list. I want to have the list update when the updatable form is closed, since while editing the details of the list, you could change the user to inactive and therefore shouldn't be in the form anymore.

You're closing the connection for the recorset, therefore you cannot refresh or requery. YOu would have to reset the connection, then requery:

Set rst.ActiveConnection = <some connection object>

then requery

make the reordset variable be public and in the Close event of the update form call prstActiveUsers.Requery.

you could refine it and track in the updatebale form to see if anythign has been added/deleted, if not then a refresh should do the trick and be faster.

That doesn't work. It gives me an error: Operation not allowed when the object is closed. I think it's because I have the settings:

rst.CursorType = adOpenStatic
rst.LockType = adLockReadOnly
rst.CursorLocation = adUseClient
Set rst.ActiveConnection = Nothing

Any other ideas?

I guess I I could just set the recordset again to a recordset with the same sql statement...

Ya that's what I had thought. I guess I'll just reset the connection upon returning to the form.
