Order of events

Hi, im currently havn difficulty with the order of events with my VBA Code.

Basically when a user clicks on a command button it should open up a form and subsequently print a report. The data for the report is based upon values on the pop up form.

The problem I am having is that the report keeps opening up prior to the form even though I have the open form command prior to open report. This is causing blank data in the report.

Can anyone put me in the right direction - Thanks

Can you explain the point of opening the form?
If it is a bound form then there must be some other way of telling the report where the data is?

You need to do one of two things:

1. Make your popup form modal - If you do, code execution will be suspended in your calling form until the modal form is closed or hidden.

2. Open the report from the popup form.
