Print Current Record in form to a report

I wish to place a button on my form to print a report of the current record shown on the form.  The main form is from a table and the subform is a query, all works fine, the report is fine.  I currently use a query parameter prompt (dialog box) to ask for the current ID field.  I wish to by-pass this step to simple click a button to first preview the report prior to printing, and/or perhaps a second option to print the report without previewing.

Thanks in advance.

Let's say the record on your form is for a particular customer with field name CustID. Then - when the user presses the button you do an open report with linkcriteria. For example on the code for the button:

dim LinkCriteria as string

LinkCriteria = "[CustID] = " & me![custID]
docmd.openreport "REPORTNAMEHERE",acPreview,,Linkcriteria

or to go directly to printer:
docmd.openreport "REPORTNAMEHERE",acNormal,,Linkcriteria


Hope this helps
