Hi,

This can be quite complex. You could hire a professional or you can learn VB and Access, try some code and then come back here if you can't find a solution.

Cheap solution, well maybe!

you can use a data report.

first set up a dataenvironment. (project/more activex designers/data environment)

set up your connection to your access db in the wizard.

then add a data report.  

open up your dataenvironment, add a command and you should see the fields from your table.

you can then drag those on to the data report.

Hi,
     You can use Data Report for report generation. You have to pass parameters to data report. The parameter is the user selection on the form. If you need further help revert back

Cheers,
John

Sankar, There is a way to split points. You need to ask for help from the moderator.
