Report events not being triggered

I hope this is enough information to let you know the question I am responding to. What I stumbled on is that if a global variable is used within the on open procedure the code will execute even when a report is printed. In a module I placed the following code:
global gbdone as boolean
then inside the on open procedure I placed the the following code, along with the other code I wanted to execute:
gbdone = false
and every thing executes

Thanks for making all this information available to us. (Microsoft sure is not much help most of the time.)
