Can you use a parameter or filter so that when someone runs the report (for example: the can select a date) it will only show that data?  And how would you do that?  Can you give me an example?

yes u can. if u have already defined DataEnvironment and Command objects use the following code as a template

    With deConfiguration
        If (.rscmnAreaList.State = adStateOpen) Then  .rscmnAreaList.Close
       
        With .Commands("cmnAreaList")
            .CommandText = _
                    "SELECT * FROM AREA " & _
                    "WHERE  (AREA_NAME LIKE @AreaName) " & _
                     "ORDER BY AREA_NAME"
            .Parameters("@AreaName").Value = strAreaName
         End With

        .cmnAreaList
    End With


u can also create the same query in design time. then automatically @AreaName will appear in Parameters tab of Command object property dialog box, for which u can set variables in run time.

Or, like this

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM MYTable WHERE AREA_NAME LIKE '" & @AreaName & "' ORDER BY AREA_NAME"  
With DE.rsCmd1
    If  .State=adStateOpen  Then .Close
    .Source = strSQL
    .Open
End With

Also, please read this item as to why not to use Data Enviroment in your code:
