    Post How to populate an Unbounded field in a Report when you go to open the Report

    Hi all,

    I have a working database with a form that allows the user to enter some info in.
    I have a report that has two unbounded fields (PrintPart1 and PrintSerial1, Report name is BlankSerialReport)
    On the form I have a button used to open the report

    My problem is setting up the BlankSerialReport button
    When clicked I want the button to print a number of BlankSerialReport's, all that have the same PrintPart1 field value and incrementing PrintSerial1 field values.

    So on my form I added three unbounded fields:


    Part --> To enter the PrintPart1 value
    FirstSerial --> To enter the starting PrintSerial1 value
    NumberBlanks --> To enter the number of BlankSerialReport's to be printed

    My event procedure for On Click
    Code:
    Private Sub Print_Blank_Reports_with_Serial_Number_Click()
    On Error GoTo Err_Print_Blank_Reports_with_Serial_Number_Click
    
    
        Dim stDocName As String
        Dim i As Integer
        Dim printSerialNumber As Integer
        
        stDocName = "BlankSerialReport"
        
        printSerialNumber = Me![FirstSerial]
        
        For i = 1 To Me![NumberBlanks]
            Reports!BlankSerialReport.Controls!PrintPart1 = Me!Part
            Reports!BlankSerialReport.Controls!PrintSerial1 = printSerialNumber
            DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acViewNormal
            printSerialNumber = printSerialNumber + 1
        Next
    
    
    Exit_Print_Blank_Reports_with_Serial_Num:
        Exit Sub
    
    
    Err_Print_Blank_Reports_with_Serial_Number_Click:
        MsgBox Err.Description
        Resume Exit_Print_Blank_Reports_with_Serial_Num
        
    End Sub
    The above code does not work, I keep getting "The report name 'BlankSerialReport' you entered is misspelled or refers to a report that isn't open or doesn't exist".

    I believe the problem is this code:
    Reports!BlankSerialReport.Controls!PrintPart1 = Me!Part
    Reports!BlankSerialReport.Controls!PrintSerial1 = printSerialNumber

    What is the correct way to set an unbounded field in a report before you open the report?

    In short, you can't; it has to be done after the report is open, or as it opens. You can use OpenArgs to pass the values:

    or if the report will always be opened from that form, populated the controls in the report's open event getting the values from the form.
