How do I repaint a subform from a vba module?

I have opened a form that contains a subform.  i would like the subform to repaint or refresh after a (lengthy) code has run and derived results to the driving back end table.  I have tried Forms![mysubform name].Repaint but I keep getting an error that the system cannot find the object.  I have checked spelling, etc.

You must use the name of the subform control, the syntax would be:
Forms![MainForm]![mysubform CONTROL Name].Form.Requery

You could try setting the focus to the subform, and then using the Refresh or Requery command.

If you have the main form open, you should be able to use something like this:
