Access forms missing display problem

P: n/a
I use forms to enter data. Once data is entered in the first form, I
save it and then open the second form. Parts of the data for the
second form (such as id, name) will come from the first form.
Strangely, if I open the second form, and enter id it will not bring
up the name. But if I then close the second form and reopen it, both
id and name will appear. What could be the problem? Your help will be
greatly appreciated.

Likely, you have not done anything to save the record entered in the first
(bound) form. The record is saved when you explicitly save it (menu item or
function key), when you move off the record to a different one, or when you
close the form. Perhaps if you include a DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
before the DoCmd.OpenForm.

Caution: the Access FAQ site is

http://www.mvps.org/access

The one cited here is unrelated to Access, but very much related to a chain
of popups that you will get if you link to it. The poster "Claire Barton" is
not a Microsoft Access MVP, but from post content and news server is very
likely Don P Mellon.
