I want to produce some reports using the dataenvironment and data report. I know how to call these up from a form. But how do i print say a subset of the table. Eg all fields with two dates, i would have the dates on the form for the user to fill in. Ten the report should print fields matching this criteria.

Hi, here is an idea:
_________________________________________

DataEnv.rsGetRecords.Open "SELECT * FROM Table Where date between #" & format$(date1.Value,"mm/dd/yyyy") & "# and # "& format$(date1.Value,"mm/dd/yyyy") & " #"

If iPrint = 0 Then Rpt.PrintReport True, rptRangeAllPages Else Rpt.Show

i am probably very dense. But i can not get this to work.
I have set my dataenvironment and report and this bit works if i want to see everything. I just can't get the above working. Please explain slowly.

Thanks

I have a few questions to ask.

When you set up the data environment and the data report, did you specify "table" as the data command type and does your report reference that table?  If so, unless you override at run time, you will get all the records in the table.

One way to do what you want is to set up the data command (which I've named MyTblByDates) as an SQL statement, something along the lines of
    select * from MyTbl where MyDate between ? and ?

Then, on the parameters tab, define the two question marks as pDate1 and pDate2 respectively (set the types appropriately).

All references in the Data Report (rptMyTbl) need to specify DataSource:de and DataMember:MyTblByDates
Then in your code
    ' Create the recordset for the report
    de.MyTblByDates dDate1, dDate2
    ' show the report
    rptMyTbl.Show vbModal
    ' close the recordset
    de.rsMyTblByDates.Close

note: de is my DataEnvironment
