Creating a report based on a ADO recordset.

Is it possible, and if so how would you use an access report against an ADO recordset.  For example I have a peice of code that creates and populates an ADO recordset with all the data for a desired report.  Is it then possible to open a report, point the report to the ADO recordset and voila.

I'm not sure if it is possible (It probably is, I just haven't tried it!)
My usual way of doing this sort of thing is to write the data out to a temporary table, and base the report on that (The advantage is that you can just bind the report to the table, and drag and drop your fields into the report) It can be a bit tricky in a multiuser situation though.

I believe in Access2002 you can bind a form or report directly to a recordset.

i think you can bind an ADO recordset to a form dynamically, but not a report.

Wes is correct in Access 2002 there is a recordset property that "Returns or sets the ADO Recordset or DAO Recordset object representing the record source for the specified form, report, list box control, or combo box control. Read/write."

In previous versions all people are doing is changing the recordsource so it requearies the database, probably not what you are wantiong to do.
