Hello,

I have a subform that when the parent form opens it does all the calculations in the subform for all the records that were there when it was closed. Although when I add a new record the subform produces the #Error in those fields trying to produce the calculations. What is the best way to refresh this subform to recalculate all the fields.

Shouldn't it be: Me.SubformName.Requery?

depends on where you will execute the code.
he was adding a new record in the subform, so after saving the record, or in the afterupdate event of the subform, you can just place
    me.requery
or
   me.recalc

Please look at the form Order Processing.The subform is linked to Stock Number in the main form. If you create a new record and use the stock number MB-08, you'll see the #Error. If you notice on when you load the form, the calculations happen.

I added the row source for you. Its just a list of customers. I haven't made the form for the inventory yet, I have just been adding records to the table InventoryNPO to test the form they use to enter new orders and check stock.

I just hit the start button on the bottom of the main form for the time beining. If you add the stock number MB-08, you will get that #error.
