Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I built the server and got it to be the master browser, tested, same 
inconsistent results. Now I am completely flummoxed.

It seems to me in a multi-user environment that if user_1 is viewing a 
table and user_2 changes a field that user_1 should see the field 
contents updated within the set refresh rate. I thought this would apply 
equally whether viewing a table displayed or via form.

Barring any other ideas I guess I'll have to come up with a different 
strategy for syncing.
