Sub-Report

I have a sub-report in a main report that pulls off the same query. The problem is that the query asks the user to input a date so it will only pull the records on that date.
So when the report opens it asks the user to enter a date and instead of just once it asks multiple times because of the sub-report. If I run the report without the sub-report it only asks once but with the subreport it asks 5 times. How can I link the entered date of the main report to the sub-report. I've tried to link it on the Link Child Fields and the Link Master fields but it won't work. The column that I'm trying to link is the AsOfDate.

Hey Code_Buzz!

  Copy the main report query
  Remove the date parameter
  Link the subreport to the Mainreport by the other links + this date.
 
  and that should do it.

Jack

It might be good to launch this report from a form where this AsOfDate will be available for evaluation.
Use the form control (forms!launchform.txtAsofDate) as the parameter
All the queries involved that use this date would be able to see and evaluate this at runtime.

This instead of the "ghost" parameter you are using now.
