    If you look at the options for OpenReport, there is one that controls whether the report is opened for preview or printed to the default printer. Unspecified, it prints.

    The parentheses aren't necessary but shouldn't hurt.

    You want report to open to screen instead of defaulting to printer? Use the View argument:
    DoCmd.OpenReport "rptDay4", acViewPreview
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.
