I am drawing a blank here - where is the best place to place the Requery/Refresh - when I update the list of a combo on 1 form I want it to be displayed in the combo on another.

FormA.SubForm1.Combo1 - list of Assignment Types to be assigned to a specific Organization.

FormB.Subform2.combo2 - List of Assignment Types - Need to add to the list that will be displayed on FormA.SubForm1.Combo1

I have tried the refresh on the load of the Subform1, on the Load of FormA,
OnClick of the Combo1, on BEforeUpdate - all without success.

Please help,
K
