Reporting filter criteria

I've created a database that uses a form filter as the basis for presenting forms and reporting of records.  The filter fields as chosen on the form are saved as a query for appliction to the forms and reports.  The fields chosen to act as filters (as well as the data chosen to act as the filter - e.g. a person's initials) needs to be reported on a report.  There are about a dozen fields that can be used as the basis for the filter though normally only 1-2 will be used.  I therefore need a way of reporting only the query fields that are active as filter criteria.
I hope that is clear and that someone can help!
Many thanks

see prevoius question and use that for your report.  If a value is not used in the form then ill assume thats its let null then set the textbox in the report Visable=False... ie Iff([froms]![frmOpen]!Text1.Value=Null,rptText1.Visable=False,rptText1.Visable=True).  if you use a chechbox use the same but test if is checked... hope that helps

or mabe you need to apply a forms filter to report filter?
then you can do this:
On report event OnOpen you write:
me.filter = !Forms[FrmName].filter

Sorry if I did't understand question
