    change sort when refresh report on form

    I have a Search form with a Report on it, gets run based on selecting criteria. Before run, it creates dynamic pass-thru SQL based on criteria chosen, then requeries the report.



    Need to add a SORT by Option- to change the default SORT (groups and sorts 6 or so fields).

    It works when form is opened, with code in REPORT OPEN event to change the default sort to:

    Code:
    Me.GroupLevel(0).ControlSource = "symbolid"
            Me.GroupLevel(1).ControlSource = "TicketID"
            Me.GroupLevel(2).ControlSource = "initLeg"
    I tried putting this code in onCurrent event on Report, but didnt work. Requerying report doesnt do, as report already open, so code doesnt fire again.

    IS there a way to change an embedded Report's sort group order, after click Search button, using new criteria?

    (I thought of closing report and re-opening to get the ONOpen code above to fire...but not sure how to implement closing a subform/report on a Form, or if even possible..

    thanks!

    I have a report with a subreport, both in Report view. The report has filtering/sorting options, each of which call a report-level function. The sorting works fine from there.

    Yes, I've done with subreport within report, so each time opening, vba can change Sort.

    But here, the report resides within the Search Form, so the Report stays open - but want it to change the Sort if Search criteria changes, but that happens in the OnOpen event...so I cant figure how to refresh it and change sort -

    so clicking on control on parent report, alters the subreport? I'm curious how you change the SORT on subreport (assuming the main report remains open?

    I'm not sure it matters that your report is within a form, I'm talking about my report/subreport staying open too. User clicks on options in the report, subreport responds appropriately. My code looks like:

    Code:
        Select Case Me.FraSort
            Case 2
                Me.BreakDownSheet.Report.GroupLevel(0).ControlSource = "SomeField"
                Me.BreakDownSheet.Report.GroupLevel(1).ControlSource = "Car_No"
            Case Else
                Me.BreakDownSheet.Report.GroupLevel(0).ControlSource = "DifferentField"
                Me.BreakDownSheet.Report.GroupLevel(1).ControlSource = "Car_No"
        End Select
