I have a form frmReportMenu that has a command button that the user can click to run a query qry ADP_query_new.
the query includes a field "CustomerID".

What I would like to do is allow the user to specify via a combo box(combo6) to produce the report for only those records that match the CustomerID selected in the ComboBox.

The form that the has the combo is  FrmForm1

one the user selects a value, I would like to execute a CMDPRint via a button on the form.

The report should be displayed with only the records that match the CustomerID value.

You can open a Report with a WHERE argument via the OpenReport method:

DoCmd.OpenReport "YourReportName", acViewPreview, , "CustomerID=" & Me.combo6.Column(0)

If CustomerID is Text data:

DoCmd.OpenReport "YourReportName", acViewPreview, , "CustomerID='" & Me.combo6.Column(0) & "'"

Note that acViewPreview opens the Report in Preview mode. If you want to print it, use acViewNormal (or just remove that argument entirely).

If I understand you correctly, the combo6 combo box is based on the ADP_query_new query.  If so, the combo6 combo box can run/update this query by using the 'On Got Focus' event.  No need for the command button to update ADP_query_new.

Once the user selects the desired value from combo6, and clicks on the CMDPRint button, the report would be called.

The report should be based on a query that has the criteria for CustomerID that looks something like
=[Forms]![FrmForm1]![combo6] .  This filters the query for the desited CustomerID.
