Hi,

I have a front-end database for a number of users which can be placed on their local environment.
So the frontend is locally and the backend is on the server.
The problem is that one of the users always has to pressing F5 when an adjustment was carried out and this is not necesarry  to the other users.
Is there a settings that can be modified?

You don't indicate where you are using refresh, but if you are trying to update a users screen to reflect additions or deletions made by other users, you need to use the requery method, not the refresh method.

Refresh will only update field data for records that already exist in a form, list, or other object.  The Requery method will update the object to reflect additions and deletions as well.

Make sure this user is following the exact same steps as the others...

The value might very update on its own, but some users are "impatient"

Hi,

You are right. If the user waits a few seconds then everything is ok.
But how is this possible? In access 2003 we didn't had this problem.
