Refresh all forms if open by multiple users

P: n/a
I am looking for a way to have an access form update for multiple
users. I have a form where certain fields will be updated on
individual computers, and there may be 3 or 4 users that have the form
open at a time. Is there a way to have all users forms simultaneously
refresh when a field is updated by one of the clients??? ex. Multiple
users have same form open, one makes a change to the data and is
critical for other users to see that change as it happens or close to
when it happens.

Wait a minute.

That's the defaiult refresh time in Access. If you want to reduce the
time between refreshes, use the menu bar, Tools->Options->Advanced to
set the Refresh Interval (secs): property to a lower value, at the
expense of slowing down the application.
