Experts, I have a parent (frmParent) and subform (sub1) and they are linked by ID's as found in the properties.  
I enter details in the parent such as currency (its a cbo) and DrawDate.  After I enter the details on the parent, I go to the sub and want the same values to be inserted (for a new record but also to update for not a new record).  it seems like I am having a refresh issue because the "new record" line in the subform seems to no longer appear after I click on it but the values seem to update tho but I just cant add more records.  If I hit the F5 button, I will see the "new record" line appear again and I can add just a single record but will need to hit F5 once again to add another record.  

I do have If me.dirty = false in the On Dirty event of the subform but that doesnt refresh like the F5 button.

Sub1:
Private Sub Form_Current()
            Me.Currency = Me.Parent.Currency
            Me.ValueDate = Me.Parent.DrawDate
            Me.Refresh 'this doesnt seem to refresh like F5
    End If
End Sub


Not sure if is is clear.  Let me know if you need additional clarification.
Grateful for your help.
