Syncronise Form and Report Recordsource on Print Report action

I use the code below in the Click event on my form to set the report filter. I now also want to set the recordsource of the report to the same as the form. How should I alter my code.

Private Sub cmdOpenReport_Click()       'I click on Print button on my form

        Me.Requery
        DoCmd.OpenReport "rptqrytblBuilt", A_PREVIEW, , Me.Filter

End Sub

Your code simply filters the report using the Form's current filter (if any). If the Form and Report are based on the same basic recordsource that would work, but if not you'd have to do more work to handle this.

That said, if you really want to set the Report's Recordsource, you have to do that from the REport. In the Load event, do something like this:

Me.Recordsource = Forms!YourForm.Recordsource

That would set the report to the same Recordsource, and you can still include your Filter criteria, or you could take the above method a step further:

Me.Recordsource = Forms!YourForm.Recordsource
Me.Filter = Forms!YourForm.Filter
Me.FilterOn = True

This does not work on On Load when I get a message

"You can't Set the Record Source property in print preview or after printing has started."

But it work on On Open.

I wonder why

Sorry about that - the Open event is the correct event to do this. By the time the Load event fires in a report, the source is already loaded and you cannot change it.
