    Default refreshing a form control

    Hi there,<BR><BR>I want to refresh the values in a &#060;SELECT&#062; drop down list. Currently, my drop down list queries an Access table when the form is opened, and populates the list with the table values. No problem there. <BR><BR>However, i am required to add the option to add to this list. I&#039;ve created a link that opens a new window, allowing another value to be added to the database table.<BR><BR>What i need is for the drop down list to be updated/refreshed when the small window is closed (i.e. once the Access table has been updated. <BR><BR>Since my form has a large number of input fields, i was wondering if there was a way of only refreshing the one control (i.e. the drop down), rather than requesting all of the input field values, and reposting them all.<BR><BR>I hope this is clear!<BR><BR>Cheers in advance for any help,<BR><BR>bob
