Enter parameter value when printing

Hello experts! I have a problem I have been struggling with for a while and can't find what is missing. I have set up a pretty simple database to enter some orders for our trade show shipments. When a new order is entered, I need it to print out the report for just that new order.

However, when I hit the "Print" button, it asks for the parameter value for printing. Even if I put in the right order number, it still will print all of them in the database.

I have set this up on several other databases and it works perfectly. I think I have some issues with the references or relationships, maybe, that are making it not work right, as I have mirrored exactly what I've done before. On this one, though, it just isn't working right and I cannot figure out what is wrong.

I have attached the complete DB as I figured that would be a lot easier than trying to describe what all I've done in the setup.

Thanks in advance for any help anybody can give me.....I'm hoping there is something simple that I just cannot see.

open your report in design view then hit F4
look in the Data tab and delete the content of the Filter Property
then save the report

in your code that opens the report

change this line

    DoCmd.OpenReport "Trade Show Orders", acViewNormal, "", "[Trade_Show_Orders_OrderID]=[Forms]![Trade_Show_Orders_Enter]![OrderID]", acNormal


with


     DoCmd.OpenReport "Trade Show Orders", acViewNormal, "", "[Trade Show Orders_OrderID]=" & Me.OrderID, acNormal
