Dear Experts,

I am trying to filter a report based on a field boolean value. I have a combo box on my form called cboTardy. The drop down's row source includes ("Excused";"Unexcused";"Excused & Unexecused") and is unbound. I would like to filter my report based on the combo box selection. If "Excused" is selected the report will only display records with the 'true' value (-1) in the tblStdTardyExcused field. If the user selects "Unexcused" then filter those records with a 'false' value (0) and if both "Excused & Unexcused" is select the report should ignore any tblStdTardyExcused filter (or allow either value) and tack on only the date filter.

I tried doing this (see code) but am getting an error message.

Ideas?

Thanks!

            strWhere = "[tblStdTardyExcused] = '" & True & "'"

Hi,

the question is: Which error in which line?

If you want to use boolean values you can do it like this:

strWhere = "[tblStdTardyExcused] = True"

Open in new window


(directly without single quotes and converting the "True" into numeric values)

Cheers,

Christian
