Access Pass Through Query

I created a Pass Through query in Access that returns a result set in the open event of a report.  I believe the data is coming back correctly as it appears in my debug window but, now that i have the data i am not sure what to do with it.  How do i get the data from my querydef to my report recordsource?
Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    Dim MyDb As DAO.Database, MyQry As QueryDef, MyRS As DAO.Recordset
    Set MyDb = CurrentDb()
    Set MyQry = MyDb.CreateQueryDef("")
    MyQry.Connect = "ODBC;DSN=DSNName;DATABASE=DBName"
    MyQry.SQL = "spApplicantFlow '05/01/2007', '04/30/2008'"
    MyQry.ReturnsRecords = True
    Set MyRS = MyQry.OpenRecordset()
    Debug.Print MyRS!BranchName
End Sub

Open in new window

Basically you need to set your "Records" as the "RecordSource for the report

The RecordSource can be something like:
SELECT CustID,CustName,CustCountry FROM tblCust WHERE Country='Spain';

Not sure i understand.  I see that my RecordSet has data in it, but it's not a table that i can call.

I can't really decipher what you code is doing.

Dose his have to be a pass through query?

Can you first see that if a standard query will work, *then* try this as a Pass through query?

Can youy simply create a linked table from this source and create a report from this linked table?

It has to be a pass through query because i need to use the "with (nolock)" option in my from cluase or the query will go to a SUSPENEDED status and never complete.  Cannot use nolock in a standard access query.

Specifically, how are you sure that the data is "Coming Back Correctly"?

Record Count, Record stream, SQL?

Using the following code:

    Debug.Print MyRS!BranchName

I moved to the first record and the Debug did display the BranchName that i was expecting.
