refresh results in combo box

I have a combo box on a form with a query as it recordsource, in this case addresses.  The user requested a button on the form to add a new address that is not in the combo box.

Easy enough, I put on the button, took them to the form where they could add a new option.  The new option was added but when They return to the form the new option doesn't show in the dropdown.

How do I refresh the combo box to pick up the just added entry.

The recordsource of the combo box is a query.

I am opening the form to add an address with the acDialog option do I return to my program right after the call.

Right now I have me.addressid.requery directly after the call to the address form.

How can this be accomplished?

You can put this after the call to open the address form in the command button, or in your form OnActivate event procedure.

MyComboboxName.requery

... where "MyComboBoxName" is the name of your combo box control.

That's what I'm doing and it doesn't show up.  Yet when I exit the form and come back in the new entry is in the dropdown.
Here is my code:
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmProperty_Addresses_Sub", , , , , acDialog, Nz(Me.PropertyID, 0)
Me.InterestedPartyID.Requery

Open in new window

You get the points.  Your answer is correct.  There was some very specific code in the module to repopulate the table that  is basis for that combo box.  So even though I had the requery it didn't matter. Seeing your answer made me look further though.  Thanks
