Is this an order?

Comboboxes really do not have a use in reports, because typically you don't "Interact" with Reports.


So can you first back up a bit and explain what your ultimate goal is here?

If your goal is to filter the report then you can do this if the report is opened explicitly in "Report View".
Simply right-click on the filed you want to filter and select one of the filter option.

Or use a form to filter for the criteria, then open the report based on that criteria.

boag2000: The "Please screen shots only!" was in regarding any refrence material.  Not an order!

boag2000/ peter57r: Im using a semi-templated report (changed values) that works fine but i want the option to filter for the whole report off that combo box.  Essentiall im looking to do what you proposed with the form.  "Or use a form to filter for the criteria, then open the report based on that criteria. " This will be a web form would this solution be supportted as a web form?

There are tons of links to Solutions here that can show you how to create a Form to filter a report.

However, If this will be a Webform, then this databases should have been created as a "Web Database".
The procedure to do what you are asking may be a bit different in a webform...
