Database building- trying to separate detail and datagridview on different forms -vb2010

hi:

I've been wrestling with trying to separate the details view and the datagridview, placing them on separate forms.  The datagridview will serve as a master docket available in read-only.  Changes and updates will be made on the details view.

I've tried several techniques, including adding the datasource to a second form, and using mdi.  However, when I make a new entry, the datagridview doesn't update.  Any ideas on how this can be accomlished?  Robert

Create a public method on the main form which refreshes the DataGridView. Then call this from the details form when you need to update it.
