Hello,

Currently I have the following code to view my report

DoCmd.OpenReport "rptResults", acViewPreview, , sFilter

That code brings up the report in "Print Preview" view. Could you please help me out with the pre-built code which will bring out the report in "Report View"?

Thanks and appreciate your help!

docmd.OpenReport "rptResults",
