How do I put a date range on a report from textfields on the form that calls the report. I do not use the DE. Right now all I can get is todays date from the functions that come with the controls.

So if I have txtfields(48) and txtfields(49) where the user inputs the dates on form8 how do I get the datareport4 to show the dates in the report...preferably the header.

create 2 global variables:

public glbBeginDate as date
public glbEndDate as date

Now... create to functions to retrieve these values


Function get_glbBeginDate() as date
get_glbBeginDate = glbBeginDate
end function


Function get_glbEndDate() as date
get_glbEndDate = glbEndDate
end function


Next, in the form8 - (probably in the command button that fires the report) assign values to the public date variables

glbEndDate = 0
glbBeginDate = 0

If trim(me.txtfields(48).text) <> "" then
    glbBeginDate = me.txtfields(48)
end if
if trim(me.txtfields(49).text) <> "" then
   glbEndDate = me.txtfields(49)
end if


Create 2 fields in the header of your report.
Control source = get_glbBeginDate()
Control source = get_glbEndDate()


Your dates will appear in your report.   Also note, these 'get' functions can be used in queries and other places where you need to access these date values - very valuable!!!

Good luck!
Keep in mind... this method allows you to use variables in query criteria.
Simply follow the above procedure and use the 'get' function in the query.

Where ([yourField] =get_glbXVariable())
