I have a button that opens a new form, inserts a clientID and now I need it to save or refresh. It is for an invoice app and I need the InvoiceID to show (sql server ID identity).

How can I do this?

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmInvoices", acNormal, , , acFormAdd
Forms![frmInvoices]![ClientID] = Me.ClientID
[frmInvoices].Form.Requery

Open in new window

Not sure if I am completely understanding.
Are you just wanting to refresh the form?

Add the Me.refresh command.
Here is a link that describes it a little more.

If you want to save the record, via VB, immediately after assigning the ClientID, try:

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmInvoices", acNormal, , , acFormAdd
Forms![frmInvoices]![ClientID] = Me.ClientID

Forms![frmInvoices].Dirty = False  '<===  This forces a record save
