Refresh Embedded view on Parent when child response saves and closes without opening new parent window on newdoc

Hi, I have an embedded view of Response docs on Parent form that need to refresh.
1st problem: If the Parent is a New Doc, and once the response is created from the parent and saved/closed, I need the Embedded View to Refresh.
I found this code from this forum that refreshes embedded view if parent is new doc, but a second Parent Window is opened if the Parent is a new doc. Code is in queryclose event of child.
After closing Parent, I'm faced with having a 2nd Parent window to close.

2nd problem with using this code: From the view navigation, if you open a response doc, and after it closes, it re-opens the Parent, when I just need it to go back to the view navigation.

How do I modify this code to refresh embedded view on parent w/out the 2nd window opening.  If there is a better way, please explain with a workable example.   Thanks in advance for your help.  I researched this time and time again with no resolution.  High points for a working resolution.
' refresh parent EMBEDDED VIEW  by opening parent and refreshing.  The False is used to get handle on current parent window if open, otherwise open new window
	If Source.EditMode = True   And  Source.IsNewDoc = False Then		
		Dim session As New NotesSession
		Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace
		Dim db As NotesDatabase
		Dim doc As NotesDocument
		Dim uiDoc As NotesUIDocument
		Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
		Set doc = db.GetDocumentByUNID(Source.Document.ParentDocumentUNID)   ' get invalid unique id error
		Set currentDoc = Source.Document
		Set uiDoc = ws.EditDocument(True, doc, False, "", False, False)   'The False is used to get handle on current parent window if open, otherwise open new window
		Call uiDoc.Refresh
	End If

Open in new window

Forgot to mention that the Embedded view needs to show as a Single Category, which is reason it's probably not refreshing on first response entry.

Here's a much older link that points to a much more complete solution:

By the way, I hope you don't have to develop this for Linux or Mac clients...

Lotus IBM

Lotus Software produced the Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet program, and later developed Lotus Notes, a groupware and email system. Following its acquisition by IBM, the Notes and Domino client/server collaborative platform were expanded to include functions such as email, calendars, to-do lists, contacts management, teamrooms, discussion forums, file sharing, microblogging, instant messaging, blogs, and user directories. IBM also release SmartSuite, a comprehensive office suite, and followed that with Symphony, unrelated to the Lotus suite of the same name.
