Changes made in one form are not shown on another form

I have a form called employee that shows all employees in a datagridview.  When you double click on an employee, a new window opens and displays the data for that employee.  When the user changes data and saves it, the changed data is not being shown in the employee form.  IF I exit the employee form and come back in, the changed data shows.  How can I get the changes made on the one form to reflect back in the main form?
Employee.vb

Private Sub Employee_Load(...) Handles ...

Try

  My.Forms.Startup.EmployeesTableAdapter.Fill(My.Forms.Startup.PfmsDataSet.Employees)

Catch ex as Exception

  MsgBox(ex.Message)

End Try

End sub
 

Public Sub ReloadEmployees()

Try

  My.Forms.Startup.EmployeesTableAdapter.ClearBeforeFill = True

  My.Forms.Startup.EmployeesTableAdapter.Fill(My.Forms.Startup.pfmsDataSet.Employees)

  Em.EmployeeDataGridVIew.Refresh()

Catch ex As Exception

  MsgBox(ex.Message)

End Try

End Sub
 

ModifyEmployee.vb
 

Private Sub SubmitButton_Click(...) Handles ...

If SaveEmployeeData() Then

  ' Data is saved

  My.Forms.Employee.ReloadEmployees()

  Me.Close()

End If

End Sub

Open in new window

I think you have to rebind the dataset to the gridview.

Turns out I was filling the wrong table.  Your suggestion for rebinding the dataset to the gridview showed me I was using the wrong table adapter.  Everything works fine now.
