No, but if you're using 2010 you can embed a Report in a Form, and you could put a button in that Form. Or include a menubar or Ribbon (if you're using 2007/2010) that shows when the report opens, and add the Close functionality to that.

I use custom shortcut menus for all of my reports.

Take a look at mod_Menus in the attached.

In the Report Open event, I call MenuReport, which builds the shortcut menu, and then assign the ShortcutMenuBar to "MyReportMenu"

This menu has options for Print, Save as PDF, Send as PDF, and Close.  The ones I use usually have other options as well, Export to Excel, and several others, but those all involve a little more code and I don't have the time to pull those into this sample db at the moment
