I have a form [f-BagLabel] on to which I would like to place a "Print Report" Button.  A similar report [r-BagLabel] already exists, and its based on a query [q-r-BagLabel].  In this case, however, I want the PrintReport button to print a report specific to the current record at [f-BagLabel]

Ordinarily, I would copy the report and copy the query, associate some query criteria from [f-BagLabel] into the new query and associate the new copied report with the new query w/ criteria.  Then, I would add a button that would open this newly created report.  This, as I am sure you are aware, results in multiple instances of the similar queries and reports.  I need to learn how to use conditions in VBA to accomplish this task w/o resorting to my current technique.

How would I incorporate some VBA into this Button to print a report whereby a field in q-r-BagLabel = some value on the form where the button is positioned?
