Requery a listbox

There are several listboxes on a tab control.  I would like to be able to requery through all the listboxes without regard to the name of the listbox.  This way, if there are new listboxes added to the form, they will be requeried at the same time.

sub requeryAll()

Me.txt_A.Requery
Me.txt_B.Requery
Me.txt_C.Requery
Me.txt_D.Requery
Me.txt_E.Requery
Me.txt_F.Requery
Me.txt_G.Requery
Me.txt_H.Requery
Me.txt_I.Requery
Me.txt_J.Requery
Me.txt_K.Requery
Me.txt_L.Requery
Me.txt_M.Requery
Me.txt_N.Requery
Me.txt_O.Requery
Me.txt_P.Requery

end sub

Thanks

Paul

It's a bit of a brute force approach but it will work and it only takes one line of code to do if you prefer this approach.
Me.Recalc

The only problem with ReCalc is that *every* calculated control gets requeried - which my not be desirable.

Hence the part about it being a "brute force" approach.  

It's simple, but comes at the price of performance and affect to every control as pointed out by DatabaseMX.

Even so, it seemed worthy of mention, some find simple, even if blunt, preferable to something more sergical that requires more code.  Even so, DatabaseMX is very correct, although if we are looking for down sides to the approach one should certainly consider performance along with the fact that everything is recalculated as MX pointed out.  If one can live with the impact of Recalc it's simple but that's it, it wins no points for the more surgical and precise approach MX provided.

Rick ... hey ... nothing wrong with Me.Recalc ... a good solution ... as long as there are not other calculated controls.  The weird thing about Recalc ... if you do it from a Sub Form, it seems to also recalc the main form also, which I have always found annoying.

So ... of course it's 'worthy of mention' ...
