Using Input Form to Run Multiple Reports

Posted on 1998-06-15

I have created an input form which has the following fields: start date and end date.  These are the parameters for the reports.  My problem is that I have seven different reports using this same form.

My question is how do I go from this form to the specific report I want?  I know that I could make seven different dialog boxes for each report but this is time consuming and cumbersome.

Any help would be appreciated.

Unless you are using macros you probably already have code to print each report. Create a subroutine in a module that includes the code for your input box and your print report code. Pass the subroutine the name of the report you want to print and refer to this in the docmd.openreport statement.
e.g.
public sub testprint(strReportname as string)

'inputbox code here

DoCmd.OpenReport strReportName ,,"[startdate]=" & inputStart & " AND [enddate]=" & inputEnd  'or whatever code you are using for your existing report

end sub
