How/when to Requery

    On a datasheet view of a form I have Start_Time in column 1 and Classes
    available in col. 2.

    Col. 1, named "ST", gets filled from a lookup table. (e.g. 9:30, 10:15,
    lunch, etc.)

    Col 2, named "Class", is also filled from a lookup table, based upon the
    classes available at the starting time shown in col 1.

    My table lookups work correctly for the initial row I click when I first
    enter the form. In other words, if I click the Class column in the 2nd row
    of the datasheet, the drop-down list only shows classes available at the ST
    on the left. Good! If I next click Class on a different row, the drop-down
    list still shows classes available at the ST indicated on the initial row I
    click. Whatever row I click first, when I enter the form, that's the list of
    Classes that populate my drop-down list of classes, for ALL rows.

    I'm guessing that I need to Requery something, sometime. But what and when?
    I tried using ST.Requery in the On_Exit event of ST, to no avail.

    I figured it out. I should use Refresh, not Requery.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
