Can't clear my DataGridView after updating a record

Hello All:
I have two forms: One form contains a data grid with prospects.  When the user clicks a row a complete form opens, so the user can update the record.  After the record is updated (which works) the record now is in the database, but the data grid in the first form is not updating.  I placed a refresh button in form one to test the code before automating the refresh.  Please look at my code.  I tried lots of thigs and what I AM GETTING IS THAT WHEN I REFRESH THE DATA GRIDVIEW SHOWS THE DATA TWICE.  THE OLD DATA AND THE NEW DATA.  Setting the datagridview to nothing does not clear the old data.  also, I tried refresh after nothing and I also tried Rows.Clear.  I get the same result. My datagridview's data source is a datatable. Please help.

Looks like you're not refreshing the datatable

Yes, that was silly, you definitely need to refresh the data table.  I thought that setting the data source to nothing would do.  Thank you.. Please see final code for refresh button below.
Private Sub btnRefresh_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnRefresh.Click

        Me.mydgCustomer.DataSource = Nothing

        da = New SqlDataAdapter(sqlCommand)
        dt.Clear()
        da.Fill(dt)
        Me.mydgCustomer.DataSource = dt


    End Sub
