Please see "What I want" below

Private Sub Report_Click()

    '                     >>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<
   
    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim ctl As Control
    Dim rpt As Report
   

    stDocName = Forms![frmResize_Report]![InReport]    'InReport is a control on an open form.

    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acDesign  'Opens report in design view.
   
   
    Set rpt = Reports!rptProfiles1
'What I want is to set rpt like
      'Set rpt = Forms![frmResize_Report]![InReport]
' i.e. read the value to which to set rpt from Forms![frmResize_Report]![InReport], because I want to change the code for each new report. Will it make it easier if I mede it into a function?


       
    '              >>>>>>>>>>Addressing Sections>>>>>>>>>>>
   
    On Error GoTo endofsections

    For i = 0 To 100
        Debug.Print rpt.Section(i).Name, rpt.Section(i).[Height]
    Next i

endofsections:
    ' exit on error because you can't tell in advance how many sections there are
    Exit Sub
   
End Sub

If you mean you wish to set your rpt Object to the report you opened:

Set rpt = Reports(stDocName)
