Hi,

the reports underlying table shld show only
those records with a particular id.

DoCmd.OpenReport "SizingResultsReport", acViewPreview, , Customer_id = Forms![cust_profile]![Customer_id]

try "Customer_id = Forms![cust_profile]![Customer_id]"
(this should bind the report to the form)

if it does not work
try entering the value in the string:
"Customer_id = " & Forms![cust_profile]![Customer_id]
(this will oen the report with the correct data and not update it -- should be ok for a report).

hope this helped.
