Conditional Fomatting Update

P: n/a
I have a field on a form which shows a field with conditional
formatting. From this form, it is possible to open another form where
the user can update things which will affect the field with the
formatting.

When this second form closes, it calls a .Requery for the first form.
The value in the formatted field updates, but it's formatting does not.

What else do I need to do?

No one ever seems to answer my questions unless I ask again in the same
thread.

Am I being rude in some way I am not aware of? Am I not explaining the
problem well enough? Is it because of my totally bogus email address?
Is "HateSpam" offensive in some way?

I didn't answer because I didn't, and don't, know the answer to your
technical question. It would have been a waste of everyone's time for me to
just post, "I don't know." Perhaps that was the reason that others did not
respond, either.

But, it was worth letting you know, now, that I had read it.

What version of Access?

Have you tried:
1) Calling the form's Repaint method?
or
2) Setting the calling form's Visible prop to No and then back to Yes
just to see if that rectifies the issue.
