gerhd,
You have a couple of other choices.
1. OLE automation, requires Access on the machine;
2. Get a third party OCX, like VSReport.

Let me know if you like the code using OLE automation.

You must add the reference to the library Microsoft Access 8.0.
In that procedure you declare a variable as New Access.Aplication

When you  do that you create a new instance of Access.
Then you should open the database window like this:
inst.OpenCurrentDatabase Reports.mdb ,False

The 'inst' is the variable that olds the instance  of access.

Next step is to open the report:
inst.DoCmd.OpenReport sReportName , acViewPreview

Hope this helps
