Not sure that I understand the question.

I think that you are asking how to tell the document "update everything 
now" even though no perceivable change has occurred with the document 
itself. An example of this is using the menu option Tools > Update > 
All. I have usually done this by recording the macro to do an update all 
and then simply issuing the dispatch that does it.
