Which error?

Do you have a data environment named DataEnvironment1?

Do you have a command in this data environment named Command1?

Yes. Thats right. But am not able to get the report.
Éric MoreauSenior .Net ConsultantCommented:
again, which error ?
nomeojAuthor Commented:
Am sorry. Now the report works. However its useful only in Text Box. Is it possible to choose using Date picker, thats from and to date?
Éric MoreauSenior .Net ConsultantCommented:
sure, all you need to do is to replace
.Command1 CDate(Text1.Text)

with something like:
.Command1 CDate(datetimepicker1.value)

This is great. Actually what am looking is., I have 2 date picker in which first one is to choose the " FROM DATE" and the other one is for " TO DATE". Simultaneously, once I choose the dates, I will have another combo box to choose the "USER NAME". I should get a report accordingly. This is my need. Can u pls help me.

If you can get it for 1 parameter, you should be able to do it for 3!

You need a Command object that as 3 parameters and provide these 3 params to the command:
.Command1 CDate(datetimepicker1.value, datetimepicker2.value, cbouser.text)

Am very new to this reporting tool. Can u pls guide me thru to do for 3 parameter. I have no clue. Pls help

>>Am very new to this reporting tool.

It has nothing to do with the report. Parameters are for the Command object. Your CommandText property must have 3 ? (because you have 3 parameters), your parameters tab must alss specify the 3 parameters. Finally, when you call the Command, you need to pass 3 values:
.Command1 datetimepicker1.value, datetimepicker2.value, cbouser.text
