How have field recalculate on form #1 when form #2 closes

SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a field on form #1 named "txtTotOPcost".  This is a calculated field and the control source is...  =Nz(DSum("[Cost]","tblOutpurchase","[EstN] = " & Chr(34) & [Forms]![frmEstimateHeader]![txtRealEstN] & Chr(34)),0)

When form #2 closes (record source for that form is "tblOutpurchase" I want the field named "txtTotOPcost" on form #1 to recalculate and show the sum total values of "Cost" in "tblOutpurchase".

I can't figure out how to make it recalculate or refresh or whatever I need to do to make the value show up.  If I close form #1 and reopen it the value does display correctly.
