How sum totals i na listbox on a form

On a form I have a listbox.  The values in the listbox come from a table named tblBayQuantities.  In that table is a numeric field named "Qty"

On the form itself I want a field named txtTotalQty to sum the qty values in tblBayQuantities.

But it doesn't update the total qty when the form I'm using to enter data into the listbox is closed.

What am I doing wrong?

I'm confused, you input data in the listbox?

Please attach a sample.

No.. I input data in a 2nd form which when closed populates the listbox on form 1.  But the tot qty field on form 1 doesn't update when a record has been added or changed in the listbox via the 2nd form.

Is the form that contains the txtTotalQty field open at the time of adding the records?
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Then Requery the listbox on Form1 when Form2 closes

Private Sub Form_Close()
    If CurrentProject.AllForms("form1").IsLoaded Then
    End If
End Sub

This works fine for me:
