print filtered or selected records

I was wondering if there was a way to print only records that were selected or based on a filter on the fly.  I want to be able to print either in report form or datasheet view specific records that have been filtered.  The best equivalent I could say would be in excel I was able to select 10 random records and print the selection.  Is something like this possible in access without actually going to the datasheet view and manually selecting the records?

Build a form based upon a table and query that brings all records from that table and then
   attach this query to the report.
    On an openevent of the report apply filter.
   DoCmd ApplyFilter "Query_attached_toreport", "ssn =  forms![form_you_build]![ssn]"
   Select the record on the form and then click the button on the form that prints the report we
   are talking about.

This may be what I am looking for, i am not sure,i have a main form that I use to view and enter records. I want to be able to print from that form either the record I am currently viewing or all of the records that fit the filter that is currently on the form.  Does this do that?  If it does, could you be more specific about how.

Yes it will do it.
First when the report is opened it gets all the records that are available to it via the recordsource (query or table) QUERY in this case. Then we apply filter that gets the
value = to the value you provide from the form.
In my case
forms![form_you_build]![ssn]
In your case
forms![main]![ssn].

On the second thought what ever method you are using (query) fro viewing the records on the form then use the same query for the report and the on ONOpen event pase the code I have given you.
