I update data in a access (2003) database. I immediatley want to access the database and at the moment, I have to put a Sleep command in. I have seen comments on ApplyUpdates for other databases but Access doesn't have one. Is there something else I can use?

ApplyUpdates  is part of the component TClientDataset;
What component are you using to access Access?  
dbExpress
TSQLQuery
TSQLTable
 ADO  
TADOTable
TADOQuery
BDE
TTable
TQuery

I am using TADOTable to update the data, and TADOQuery to subsequently read it.

Huh? That can't work really.
The answer to your original question is use Post method like;
MyTable1.Post;
commits the data to the database; but I think you have other issues;
since you can update ADOTable without first reading it;
And if your querying with ADOQuery why not update it?

I use a ADOTable.Post to commit the data to the database on one form.

On another form I try to read data, automatically, using a ADOQuery. The trouble is that when reading the data in the ADOQuery, it seems that the ADOTable.Post event hasn't written it to the database. If I put a Sleep(5000) between the ADOTable.Post and the read in using the ADOQuery, it works. But I have the problem that Sleep(5000) works on my machine but I have to use longer on other machines. I wondered if there was any other way?

It's really a design problem not a Delphi problem.
Are these separate applications you're calling 'Forms"?

If not, put the ADO data objects in a DataModule; so they can share an ADOConnection
Or put the ADOConnection on a common unit.
Or you could use a ClientDataset object and local data provider in a DataModule
