    Arrow VBA changes report recordsource but recordsource property box does not show this.

    Hi, I have a sample DB that is a very simple example of a problem I need to solve. A table with color and size. A RED query that filters by red and a BLUE query that filers by blue. A single report has no set record source in design mode.



    When the report it opened, it is opened with a recordsourse of Red set by On Open Vba. Two buttons on the report header are RED and BLUE. When the buttons are pressed they simply execute one line of vba to change the record source.

    The problem is I need the recordsource PORPERTY BOX to be populated with the new recordsource query so that the "Sort By" in the "Group, Sort and Total" section will work.

    I know there are other ways to do this, but this is a VERY simplified example of a more complex DB that needs the RecordSource Property to SHOW the current recordsource.


    I can send you the small sample DB so you can see what this is all about. Too bad it can be uploaded here.


    Can anyone help with this?



    Thanks! jmark@stayintouch.us

    As answered elsewhere

    I'm not clear where you expect to see the recordsource while the report is open. As I would expect, this shows the blue query as the record source:

    Me.RecordSource = "QueryBlue"
    MsgBox Me.RecordSource
