You can use an AfterInsert event procedure or macro to requery a recordset whenever a new record is added.

To run a macro or event procedure when the AfterInsert event occurs, set the OnAfterInsert property to the name of the macro or to [Event Procedure].


This example shows how you can use a BeforeInsert event procedure to verify that the user wants to create a new record, and an AfterInsert event procedure to requery the record source for the Employees form after a record has been added.

To try the example, add the following event procedure to a form named Employees that is based on a table or query. Switch to form Datasheet view and try to insert a record.

Private Sub Form_BeforeInsert(Cancel As Integer) 
 If MsgBox("Insert new record here?", _ 
 vbOKCancel) = vbCancel Then 
 Cancel = True 
 End If 
End Sub 

Private Sub Form_AfterInsert() 
End Sub
