Is it possible to filter a report before it is opened?  I currentl have a form which filters a report, however the report has to be opened in order for the filter to work.  I would like the user to choose the filters on the form first and then run the report with the set filter included.  

Also, my report has dates on which i would like to be able to filter, like TO - FROM so that a user could enter two dates and have the appropriate data returned.
