Combining Multiple Access Reports that Have Different Criteria Sources

Last Modified: 2018-02-02
I have a large database that has essentially 3 databases combined into one.  Each report I currently have is tied to criteria that is entered into the form that the queries are attached to.  Now that I am done with the individual reports, I want to be able to combine all reports into one, however, the issue I'm running into is I would have to open and fill out information in all 3 original forms to have the criteria that all 3 reports would need to generate.  Is there a way to accomplish this without having to copy and paste queries and building all new reports running off of a master?  Is there an Or/And statement that can be used inside the original queries to allow either form to be used for the criteria (only when filling out the correct one)?  I hope this makes sense and please let me know if there are any questions.
