    Open a report based on current record in a form


    I am looking to be able to use a button in my form to open a report based on the current record in the form.

    I have looked around and seen many responses for similar questions however these are based on just a single form/report. Whereas in my scenario, I have subforms and subreports all involved.

    The way in which the button works with only one report is for example:

    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
    DoCmd.OpenReport "ReportName", acViewPreview, , "[RecordID] = " & [RecordID]

    Basically, I need to be able to make the ID on the subreports equal the current ID on the form. So instead of having just one report equal to the record ID, I need;



    Really, I need some help being able to incorporate this into the code.

    Many thanks in advance,

    You should be able to just set "Link Master Fields" and "Link Child Fields" both to recordID for each Subreport. That should make them automatically Filter out everything but the recordID being looked at in the parent Report.

    Then you can just use the regular method of opening the Report and everything should work.

    Thanks for the advice, it helped a lot.

    I originally didn't have any sort of content in the primary report so there were no fields to link it to. Now I have created one with the Record ID already set into it and the fields link appropriately.
