Unanswered: Printing Report
I am making a form to print a report. I use Filter and FilterOn property to filter the report. This works well and I got the correct result when I print preview it. However, when I print it, it gives me the whole records, rather than the filtered one. Does anyone know why this occurs ? It seems a bit strange, because usually if the print preview is right, the printing must also be right.
My code is :
DoCmd.OpenReport report_name, acViewPreview,"",""
Reports(report_name).Filter = str_filter
Reports(report_name).FilterOn = True
DoCmd.SelectObject acReport, report_name, False --> multiple reports
Is it true that grouplevel property can only be modified at runtime at Report's Open event ? If that's the case, if we want to modify it again, we have to close the report and open it again ?

Assuming your code is behind a button on the form, just have 2 buttons...one for preview and one to print.
For the preview button, use your same code but remove the PRINT line at the bottom. For the print button, re-use your preview code but remove the preview syntax and replace it with the print syntax.
