    Default add/change fields in same record appearing in two forms attached to the same table

    I have created 2 forms attached to the same table. I want to be able to have any data added or changed in a field on the same record appear or change on both forms. The 2 forms have different purposes but share many of the same fields. I only want to enter the data or change once. Since the field rules apply to all forms in a table, should'nt the data apply the same way? Is it possible to do this?

    ....should'nt the data apply the same way?
    If the two forms are based on the same table, then they will display the same field values on screen when they are initially opened. If the user changes a field value on one form and saves the record, the other form (if already open) will be unaware that the record was changed. The display in the second form will lag behind until the display is resynchronized with the table. This can be as simple as pressing the F5 key. It can also be done in code using the resynch() form method.
