I need to display an Access 2007 report within a form. The users enter information in the upper portion of the form and they need to see a report on the bottom half of the screen. Is it possible to have a report displayed within a form?

Thanks.

Not in 2007, but you can in 2010 (new feature).

You could build a UI where the Form and Report were side-by-side (and moved with each other as needed) but it could be quite time consuming.

Open a Form, and then Open the Report.

In the Report's Open event, include code that will move that report to show side-by-side with the Form.

Me.Top = Me.YourForm.Top
Me.Left = Me.YourForm.Left + Me.YourForm.ActiveWindowWidth

etc etc

Of course, if you open these forms Maximized, then you'll have some unwanted effects.

You can also place the Form and the Report in a certain area of the screen, then set the Moveable property of both to: NO

Then you can use the form to (dynamical) filter the report (if that is what you are after).

Here is a very basic sample.
