I've created a program using base. Users enter data into an .odt file. I
have a button that opens another form, so the user can add data to the
database, but when they return to the prior document, they have to refresh
the database in order to see the newly entered data in a dropdown list. My
users are elderly, so I need this process to be super easy.

What I've done, is added a button to the second form - "Return to___"
naming the form they started from. This activates the document, but I still
need a way for the refresh to happen automatically. I either need the first
form to close when the second one opens, so the data is available when the
"return to____" is clicked, or, when the first form is activated, it needs
to automatically refresh via a macro or something.

Any thoughts? I would really appreciate your assistance.

Thank you,
