    Unanswered: Filtered Report?

    Hey all, I have been trying to filter my report However It doesnt seem to be working the way I would like it to. I have the ability to filter on my form, so I can search Wood* and then there will be 27 records displayed so I can view each one speratly. however now I would like to have it on a report. I would like to then click the report button, and view those 27 records on my report as the layout that I have provied I can see multiple on a sheet. Any ideas?

    how have you se the filter on your form?
    how do you call your report?
    if you call the report from the form you could put the criteria as part of the call to the report
    have a look at the help system for the options on opening a report by code. Can't remember if its docmd.openreport but soemwhere in the help it tells you how to set parameters (basically its the same as the where clause in SQL minus the 'where' text

    you may even be able to asign the form filter directly
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Hey Sarah,

    Here is a way to filter your info. to go to a Report if you are searching for a Date. Check it out:
    Private Sub cmdPreviewTheReport_Click()
    On Error GoTo Err_cmdPreviewTheReport_Click
        Dim stDocName As String
        Dim stLinkCriteria As String
        stDocName = "rptEAFilingReport"
        stLinkCriteria = "[ScanDate]>=" & "#" & Me![BeginningDate] & "# AND [ScanDate]<=" & "#" & Me![EndingDate] & "#"
        DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acViewPreview, , stLinkCriteria
        'DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acPreview
        Exit Sub
        MsgBox Err.Description
        Resume Exit_cmdPreviewTheReport_Click
    End Sub
    Just take a look at it and you will see how it works.

    This is the code behind two Date input boxes on an Unbound form. When you input your dates and click the CommandButton, it then filters for the dates input.

    have a nice one,

    I found that the report filter attribute dosen't work as well. The besy way to do it is to pass it to the record source. You can do it from the report open function

    sSql = "Select * from TrackingSheet WHERE Name = " & quotedstr("john*")

    Me.RecordSource = sSql

    or call it from a form like so

    Report_reportname.RecordSource = sSq

    If your using strings the following function is very helpful.

    ' used to put quotes around text in SQL
    Public Function quotedStr(ByVal str As String)
    quotedStr = """" & str & """"
    End Function
