embed a report in a form

Is there any possible way to embed a report into a subform.

The reasoning is I have a db which a user has report for each section worked on.
I'm building a 'report previewer' which a user would potentially change the report with a list box.
and then press print, or edit or whatever using command buttions.

I've redone one of the reports as a form already and it works great,
but I don't really want to do this for every report.

    Hi jpostuma,

    Sorry, no go, but maybe you can rethink the structure and do a popup report or something on those lines.
