    Thumbs down Create a report based on a pop-up form

    It's a little complicated to explain, but I'll try. Access 2007 is being used.

    What I'd like to do is have my users select a button on the switchboard. This would bring up a form consisting of a combo box with the selection criteria (say employee names) and a "create report" button.

    When a user choses an employee from the combo box and hits the "create report" button on the form, a report showing information on that employee would come up on the screen.

    I think what I'm trying to do is have the value of the combo box become the criteria of a query on which the report is based.

    Is that even possible?

    Your "Create Report" will probably use the OpenReport command so just supply a WhereClause from your ComboBox.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
