I have a report that is used by several areas.  I do not want to create five different reports.  I can pass critieris to filter the data, but how to I change the reports title label to read, say, "South", when it is opened?

how are opening the report? post your codes.

you can use Tempvars collection to store the name for yuor report's label

Tempvars.add "myLabel", "<your variable filter here>"

in the open event of your report, or in the print event of the section of the report where you placed the label

place this codes

me.labelName.caption=tempvars!myLabel

I inherited this project and the report is opened with the DoCmd.OpenReports.  Which report depends on which item in a listbox the user selects. So far, I have the below

                       Case 8:  DoCmd.OpenReport "rptAreaReports", acViewReport, , "Zone = ''EU South'' "
                                Reports("rptAreaReports").lblCaption.Properties("caption").Value = "South"

Actually, I got it to work with the OpenArgs argument in the statement so I am good.  Thanks.

calling report: pass required title as openArgs of the report.
DoCmd.OpenReport "yourReport", acViewReport, ,,,,"South"

Open event of report:
Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    Me.titleLabel.Caption = Me.OpenArgs
End Sub

Your solution doesn't really provide any details - could you perhaps post the codes you're using to do this, so other may benefit from it?

Below is the new code.  I just found out from the client that ALL the reports are the same structure, so will be using the pattern for Cases 5,6,7,8,9 for the other report calls

With Me.lstReports
             For I = 0 To .ListCount - 1
                 If .Selected(I) Then
                     Select Case I
                       Case 0:  DoCmd.OpenReport "DealSummary", acViewReport
                       Case 1:  DoCmd.OpenReport "ActivityRpt", acViewReport
                       Case 2:  DoCmd.OpenReport "PartnerRpt", acViewReport
                       Case 3:  DoCmd.OpenReport "ActionDueWeekRpt", acViewReport
                       Case 4:  DoCmd.OpenReport "ActionDueMomthRpt", acViewReport
                       Case 5:  DoCmd.OpenReport "rptAreaReports", acViewPreview, , "ZSM = 'NA East' ", , "Noth America Eastern Zone"
                       Case 6:  DoCmd.OpenReport "rptAreaReports", acViewPreview, , "ZSM = 'NA West' ", , "Noth America Western Zone"
                       Case 7:  DoCmd.OpenReport "rptAreaReports", acViewPreview, , "ZSM = 'EU West' ", , "Western Europe"
                       Case 8:  DoCmd.OpenReport "rptAreaReports", acViewPreview, , "ZSM = 'EU South' ", , "Southern Europe"
                       Case 9:  DoCmd.OpenReport "rptAreaReports", acViewPreview, , "ZSM = 'JPN' ", , "Japan Zone"
                       Case 10: DoCmd.OpenReport "InactiveRpt", acViewReport
                     End Select
                     Exit For
                 End If
             Next
        End With
