    Ok, I've been slogging through my first database and have been able to
    get just about everything to work. What I need to know is if there is
    a way for me to update the form after entering data in a specific
    field. I have a single form database that is using images (ImagXpress)
    along with data and I would like to see the image after I put in the
    image name instead of leaving the record and coming back. Is there a
    way to do this or am I stuck with the alternative? All images are
    located at a URL address which ImageXpress looks up when I use the
    Form_Current command. Should I use Form_AfterUpdate instead? I am
    such a noob. Thanks in advance.

    Simply Requery the control with the image in the AfterUpdate event of
    the specific control on the form. E.g.

    Private Sub txtMyTextbox_AfterUpdate()
    Me!imgMyImage.Requery
    End Sub
