Hey Experts....this may be easy not sure, I have a document with data that changes regularly (lets say prices) From this document I create other docs (client) that have dblookups for these prices. When the client doc is created initially it picks up all the values correctly, however is somebody changes the prices the client document must be opened and refreshed before the db lookup will work, is there a. a way to have the client lookups update soon as the original doc is changed or b. have the client doc refresh the values soon as it is opened for viewing?
