Hi,
Using ACCESS 2.0 I made a samall application to print receipts for customers. I have a form to input data in a table "Transactions", a Query using that table, and a button [Report] on the form to print a receipt for the current displayed record (usually the record just entered and saved). The problem is that it prints all records instead of the current record only.
Please help.
Thanks

What are you using to determine what the "currently displayed" record is?  This is obviously where the problem lies.
 Do you want to click on a [Report] button in your form, and print the receipt? Or do you want to go to the report manually, and print any report you choose?
The answer depends on what exactly you want to do.

Here is what you need to do:

1.  Create the button
2.  On the on click event add the following code (I am going to assume you have some Key field which I will call ReceiptNum.  You of course will have to put in your own field name.:

DoCmd DoMenuItem 0,0,4       (This saves the current record so if someone just made changes they will be committed to the database)

DoCmd OpenReport "ReceiptReport",,,"ReceiptNum = " & Me!ReceiptNum                (Note this example assumes that ReceiptNum is a number.  If your Key field is a text field then the code would be:

DoCmd OpenReport "ReceiptReport",,,"ReceiptNum = """ & Me!ReceiptNum & """"

For both of these examples the "ReceiptNum =" part is a where clause for the report.  You can put in many different things there such as if you wanted to print all the receipts for a particular customer you could use:

DoCmd OpenReport "ReceiptReport",,,"CustomerID = " & Me!CustomerID.

Hope this helps
