Requery/Refresh subform

I have a pretty standard from/subform form in an app I am developing.  The client uses it to set up payment plans for their customers.

The main form is frmInstallPain_Main with  recordsource of tblInstallPay_Main

The subform is frmInstallPay_Sub with a recordsource of qryInstallPay_sub, which is a query over tblInstallPay_Sub sorted so the due dates show in order.



On the main form there is a button 'Generate/Regenerate' payments.  When this button is pressed logic is invoked that looks at the items on the top of the screen (agreement date, number of payments, downpayment amount) then calculates the balance due for the account and generates a payment schedule for the specified number of payments.

Simple stuff and the logic work as it should.

If the user is editing an existing payment and clicks the button to regenerate, the new schedule is calculated and shows in the subform.

The problem is when a new plan is being entered.  All of the above steps take place but the payment schedule does not show in the subform.

To add a new plan the form is opened with acformadd :

docmd.openform "frmInstallPay_Main",,,,acformadd

How can I get the newly created payment plans to show the generated schedule in the subform?  

At this point the users have to exit the form and then come back in to see the generated schedule.  Obviously not acceptable.

you need to requery the subform.. after doing all the routine.


me.frmInstallPay_Sub.form.requery

or

me.Name_of_subform_control.form.requery


or use this


me.frmInstallPay_Sub.requery

or

me.Name_of_subform_control.requery


also you can try using the main form's current event to requery the subform

private sub form_current()

me.Name_of_subform_control.requery

end sub
