    Cancel Error

    I have a report that is run off a query. Before opening the report the user has to enter in a date parameter. If the user choses to abort the report (by selecting cancel) a Run-time error 2501 appears.



    Is there anyway to avoid this? A user may click a report by accident and thus chose not to run it and I want to give them the option to cancel without having an error.
