Create a report from current record in form

  I have a form (frmProposal) which gets its data from a query that combines two tables (tblCustomers and tblBidDescription).  There is a report (rptProposal) that uses  the data from another query (qryProposal) to generate (surprise!!) a proposal.  I am looking to open the rptProposal from the frmProposal using the [ProposalNumber] on the frmProposal.  I have tried using an EventProcedure in the OnClick property of the Command Button that opens rptProposal:

Private Sub PreviewProposal_Click()

On Error GoTo Err_PreviewProposal_Click

    Dim stDocName As String
    stDocName = "rptProposal"

    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acPreview, "[ProposalNumber]=" = Me![ProposalNumber]

Exit_PreviewProposal_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_PreviewProposal_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_PreviewProposal_Click

End Sub

However, this still opens ALL proposals.  How can I just get it to open the Report using ONLY the Proposal based off of the record I am working on and not every record in the database.

you are almost there!
you put the filter in the wrong argument (it should be in the WHERE argument and not the filtername)

just add an extra comma and alter the your filter with the ampersand (&), ie
DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acPreview, ,"[ProposalNumber]=" & Me![ProposalNumber]

Try this:

DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acPreview, "[ProposalNumber]=" &  Me![ProposalNumber]

Thank you.  I was batting my head against a wall.  Thought I tried that.  Must have been a brain fart!!  Regards, Westy
