Update a form's data output by changing the query to which it's bound without closing/reopening form

Hi. I have a form "frmHST"  that opens from another form. frmHST's source data is a Select Query generated by user field selections on that source form where a little VBA code organizes into a QueryDef, providing the data set for frmHST which it then opens. While still open, I would like the user to have the option of generating a new queryDef from within frmHST and regenerate the form based on these new data. The code for revising the query is easy. How do I cause frmHST to display data based on the revised query. Refresh? Requery? Thanks
