Lets say I want to make a form that will be my reports switchboard. It will have command buttons for various reports and when you click them another form comes up with a combobox to select your filter criteria. So if I click the Hours by Employee Button a form comes up with a compo box to select an employee. Etc& I attached my database structure so you can see what I called my fields and stuff. Ill be watching to answer any questions you might have.
