Update query and report printing

I would like to automatically fill a field (DatePrinted) with the current date in each record of a query after I print a report. This is a personal project for billing that I am working on as described in a previous question

https://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/MS_Access/Q_20951916.html


I would like to print only the records that are marked completed and haven't been printed previously and then enter the date after the printing is done. Should I have a separate Update query that I run after printing? I am sure there would be several options in code but for now I would like to have an efficient but quick and dirty solution. Maybe with a macro? I also have these databases synched to a Palm with HanDBase which is where the charges will usually be entered so I need a method that will not corrupt that setup as well.

Pointing me in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.

I think this will get me moving on just fine - next will probably be Report Design questions!

This is the first time I've used expert-exchange to ask my own questions - WOW, it sure is shortening my "development" time. It almost feels like cheating. :-)

As long as it's no school assignment cheating this way is OK <LOL>

BTW the programmers motto always is "Better copied from a good sample as badly constructed by myself"

That's ok, I'm using the questions I've answered as my list of test questions.  Is that cheating Nico??

For you that is "my pupil" <ROTFLMAO>
