Excel VBA - Refresh Modeless Userform

I have created a modeless userform that loads spreadsheet data when it initialises.  If the spreadsheet is edited with the form open i would like the data in the userform to update.  Is simply adding a "refresh" button on the form (that effectively closes and reopens it) the way to go or is a worksheet change event better?

It depends how live you want it to be. A Worksheet_Change event will keep the data more up to date than a button.

Thanks for your interest in the Question.  The actual project worksheet has approximately 100 drop down boxes that are used for building a session plan and each change will slightly alter the content of the information and chart that is loaded on the userform.  I think a button will spare the system resources and make the spreadsheet work faster.  What do you think?
Assuming a "refresh" button is the way to go - do you think unloading and then re-opening the form to run the initialize code is the simplest method or can i attach the initialize code to a simple command button on the form and get the same effect?

If you need to run the complete code, just call Userform_Initialize from the button click directly. If not, move the code you do need into a separate routine and call that from both the Initialize event and the button Click event.
