You're probably binding the datagrids to DataSets. It's important to understand that DataSets are disconnected from the datasource. Once you filled them though a DataAdapter, the connection is closed. If you want updated data, you will have to use DataAdapter.Fill() again. There's no magic live-data there: the application must go to the database and get the newer data, that's it.
