Saving Date in Access

Last Modified: 2020-02-26
In Access I have created a customer database and an invoice for my customers.  When a new customer comes in I input their info in the customer database and then in the invoice I us a combo box to find the customer and populate the info in the invoice. The problem I am running into is that when I enter a new customer and then go to the invoice it cannot find the customer info..  I have to click on refresh, refresh all, before it will see the new customer even though I have created a saved button and click on "save".   Is there a way to get Access to save the customer record so that I can go directly to the invoice and pull up the customer info without going through so many steps?
