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.
