Hoping someone can advise on this one. I have some code that, when a button is clicked, activates a dropdown on a form and changes the source object of a subform. This is working ok, but after opening, the source object won't refresh. The data it displays is dependent on the value in the dropdown, which defaults to the current reporting period. The code is:

Private Sub cmd_View_By_Period_Click()

Dim var_Today As Date
var_Today = Date

Me.cmb_RepPeriod_MgmrTasks.Enabled = True
cmb_RepPeriod_MgmrTasks.Value = DLookup("Period_ID", "tbl_Rep_Period", "#" & Format(var_Today, "mm-dd-yyyy") & "# BETWEEN Start_Date AND End_Date")
Me.frm_ManagerTasks.SourceObject = "frm_ManagerTasks_Period"
Forms!frm_Manager_Dashboard!frm_ManagerTasks.Requery

End Sub

Thanks in advance.
