Trying to open a report with a filter

I have this code in the onclick code of a command button on a form...

    Me.Filter = "ListApptBestAgentBusiness" = -1
    Me.FilterOn = True
    
    DoCmd.OpenReport "rptListingAppointmentsSet", acViewPreview, "", "", acNormal

Open in new window


The report is supposed to be displaying only the records where ListApptBestAgentBusiness is True

But it is displaying all records and not filtering.  Thoughts?

You are applying the filter to the form that is opening the report, not the report itself.  The report isn't even open yet.  The OpenReport method has two arguments.  One for a filter and the other for a where clause.  The Where clause is more efficient if your BE is connected to a RDBMS since it returns only the selected records and so can minimize network traffic.  The filter option returns ALL records requested by the report's RecordSource and then filters them locally.  So, depending on the size of the recordset the Where clause could save a lot of time.  Personally, I always use the Where Clause regardless of what type of tables I am connected to.

DoCmd.OpenReport "rptListingAppointmentsSet", acViewPreview, , "ListApptBestAgentBusiness = -1", acNormal
