    Question Unanswered: Capture user input from parameter query

    I created a parmeter query where the user has to enter 2 dates, one after another. The query works great but I want to capture the dates that the user puts in so I can use them elsewhere. Any suggestions?

    Use a custom dialog box (one you make yourself) to allow the user to specify both the dates on the same screen. You can then refer to whatever the user has selected by interrogating your custom dialog box. You can use that as criteria for reports or forms, as a source for a new record, whatever you want.
