- Reopen rptABC in acPreview mode.

Thank you.

Something like this should get you started:

    DoCmd.OpenReport "YourReport", acViewDesign, , , acHidden
    Reports!rpt!chrt.RowSource = "YourNewQuerySource"
    DoCmd.Close acReport, "YourReport", acSaveYes
    DoCmd.OpenReport "YourReport", acViewPreview
