    Update all report and form titles with a single input

    I have many forms and reports that I use for events throughout the year. Everything remains the same on every report/form except the title. For example, "Winter Conference 2018" needs to change to "Spring Conference 2019." There's got to be a way to do that than manually editing each report/form. Any advice? I'm more comfortable using the interface than I am using Visual Basic.

    In a form put some combo boxes,
    cboSeason: Spring, summer, winter,etc
    cboYr: 2019,etc

    then in the query make TITLE:
    TITLE: forms!myForm!cboSeason & " " & forms!myForm!cboYr

    then the report just shows that field.

    Thanks ranman256, but I'm a little confused. Can you simplify? Sorry to be so thick...I've used Access for years, but I'm totally self-taught.

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