refresh(??) pull down list help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a vendor table and a customer table. When adding products to the customer table, in a form, sometimes I have to add a new vendor. So I have a pop-up form for that. However, that vendor does not then show up in the pull down list for vendors on my customer form. How do I update that list without having to close the form and reopen it? 

    Please bear with me. I'm new to Access, have no idea how VB stuff works. Please, your explanations need to be clear, concise and simple.
