Thank you mbiz... the query is being used for a DLookup. The DLookup is part of a button that sends an email. I am having trouble and have to click off the form and them back on for it to work. Or I have to CTRL F9 to update everything. I am hoping if I tell it to requery it will run smoother. So the query just is in the background and then gets refered to in a DLookup. Does that make sense? I don't really need it open... but just want it to updated.

It sounds like the current record on the form is not actually saved at the time you click the button, so the DLookup is returning old data.   Does that seem like the issue?

Try adding this line immediately before the DLookup:

Ok... Thanks I'll try that. Might be the solution. It is not that it is pulling up old data, it is actually pulling up no data at all. When I try to open the query by itself it is blank.

Really appreciate your help on this!
Me.Refresh is intended to update the records of the form's ControlSource.  As a side effect it saves the current record.  I don't like relying on side effects.  I prefer to be explicit so I would use:

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord

That way, the reader knows for sure what is happening.  A novice might not know the side effects of Me.Refresh and Me.Requery.
