    Hi there
    I have a form relating to a table "vehicledetails" with a page displaying a
    list "availablevehicles" and another page showing a subform relating to
    another table "vehiclebookings" and displaying a list "currentbookings".
    When I perform an action to place a booking, the "availablevehicle" list
    updates immediately, however the "vehiclebookings" list dosent update unless
    I close and reopen the Form.
    Have tried refresh and requery, to no avail. any ideas
    Cheers Ross

    processing code, and THEN do a requery on the sub-form as above.


    me.Refresh - force a disk write of the main form
    - this assume your code is running
    - in the main form
    --- now call your update stuff......

    The above should work. As mentioned, you might change the above to
