Ah, that presents a different problem. As far as I know, the only way
you could do that would be to send your info to a table that is also
open (or in an open form) in ‘Instance #1’, and then have maybe a timer
that looks at the table every-so-often and initiates the ‘locate’
function, when data in the table is seen to have changed.
It looks like Tom Krieg’s response covers this.
All the best with it.
