    DoCmd.OpenReport in VB program?

    hi, i am trying to open an Access report using a VB program, but i want the report to open to a record specified by the user so that when i print the report, the only pages printed will be the report for that record only. i can open the entire report, but this includes all of the records.

    thanks for help in advance, PJ

    What you have to do is let the user set the criteria so you can select one record. Build the query as a string in code and set that SQL select string as the datasource of the report.

    Are you building this in Access or in VB?
    I used to build applications in Access, but now I build new apps in VB. I don't even know if you can do a Docmd.Openreport from VB. I know that's what I used in Access, but I don't even know how to access a report in Access from VB.

    In Access you can do something like this yes:
    Code:
    DoCmd.Openreport "rptPerson", acViewPreview, "qryPeople", "Name = '" & txtName.text & "'"
    hope my Access code isn't that rusty

    i found out how to do it using the RecordSource function. here it is:

    acc_app.DoCmd.OpenReport "Report_name", acViewDesign
    acc_app.Reports("Report_name").RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM Table_name WHERE Field_name = '" & user_entry_variable & "'"

    thanks for the help,
    PJ
