How to run a report with no criteria

Excellent video.  I am a novice so don't assume I know anything.

In the example code with a Start and End date in the criteria form it doesn't appear to allow for running the report with NO start and end date.  i.e. unfiltered.  

Please show the code needed to do that

I would have to see the form to give more specific advice, but the code could be written to copy an unfiltered query to the report's record source query if no criteria are selected, or a filtered query if some filter values are selected.  See my Fancy Forms sample database for one way to do this:

Here is a screen shot of the form:

Which video were you viewing? For some reason, it's not linked here.

In most cases, you just check to see if the user has entered values in your Start and End date boxes, and then move along from there. For example:

If Nz(Me.txtStart, "") = "" And Nz(Me.txtEnd, "") = "" Then
  '/ user did NOT enter any dates
  DoCmd.OpenReport "YourReport" etc etc
Else
  '/ user did enter dates, so create the filter below

End If

This solution goes far beyond my expectations.  As a novice ACCESS developer I was looking for a verse and got the BIBLE!
