I want to create a report based on a form data....this form takes user input in text fields and does some calculations based on a module...i cant just export data using the export option as it output the field names as labels which the user has to edit

most of the fields in the form are not based on a query and are not part of a table

how can i take the existing data entered in the form and output it to a report?

Hi samipk,

You can put expressions in the textboxes of the report like = [Forms]![frmMain]![Text1]


Good Luck!

Is the form open before you open the report?
Is columecalc spelt correctly?

columecalc is the name of the form & TotalVolume is the name of the Textbox on the form?
If so can you post a screenshot of the report design
