new to access: How to limit data in reports

i want to create a report that will be limited on a value I pass in to it. I've never used access before so i want to see which options are available for that and which you would recommend (and how to use them :).  I need a walk through like even how to pass the value to the report.

Thanks

To open a report say from a button use,

Private sub cmdMyButton_Click()
    Docmd.openReport "rptMyReport", acViewpreview, , "ID = " & Me.id.Value
   '                              report name,   view                , where condistion (without where key word)
End sub

this example will open the report name rptMyReport and only show records where the id = the value ID from the form.

idea??  more help???
