I have frmRetailName that needs to refresh frmSelector either when I run it's append query command button or when it exits out.

using this code:
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, 5, , acMenuVer70

I can refresh frmSelector with its own button but it's an extra step.   I need frmRetailName to do it.  Is this possible?


Thanks in advance.

rock,

Thanks for you answer.  The requery worked, but it went back to the beginning.  The refresh code refreshed it at its current record.  That's kind of what I was looking for.  I was a little quick to accept without giving you some points. I appologize.  Yours worked and I wanted to give you recognition.  Thanks to both.
