Hi,

I have parameter queries with reports attached. Instead of typing the required data in, how do I set up a drop down box or combo box to choose the option that I want please?

regards, portlandnow

IMO you should avoid parameter queries. Instead, but a query without parameters and run your reports either (a) from an existing form, where you'd navigate to the record you want to show and then click a Print button or (b) from a "report builder" form where you'd select various criteria and such to correctly build/filter your report. Using this type of strategy, you could then have combos, listboxes, etc to use as selections.
