Take a standard order-entry. You have your "header" info with the PO number,
and Tax rate, etc. and then you have one to many item lines. Currently I do

screen (that part is easy). Then when they click the submit button, the pop
closes and the bottom screen (with the PO number and Tax rate, etc.) gets
updated with line items.

back to server where I can update a database and re-direct the user to a new
(i.e. updated) order-entry screen.
The only alternative I know of would be to instruct the user with a "Please
Press the Recalc Button On Main Screen After This Pop-Up Closes" message.
But that seems so lame.
