OpenArgs with Report ?

Posted on 2002-04-25

Can the OpenArgs property be used for Reports? I have not seen anything documented about this. But when I type openargs in the Code section of a Report Form it changes to OpenArgs. Anyone know anything about this?

I must agree with Ricky, as the report object doesn't have an OpenArgs property.

Remains the question why would you need it.

Passing data can be done using Global variables that are used in the OnOpen....

"Remains the question why would you need it."

well for same reason that you would need them for Forms. Of course you can use Global vars, but that's not the best choice.

All my "communication" with a report is by means of the filter that's passed to limit the number of rows to display.
If you don't use that, (set FilterOn to False) then you're able to mis-use the Filter property of the form...

OpenArgs on report was included in Access2002, so it depends on what version of access you have
