Query
I have an Access database this is in place for in person registration at a convention. The registration system uses a few data fields then prints a report. I can't get the report to work the way that i want it to. I need the report to pull the record that i just entered via query (or whatever if i'm wrong about that) and print a "reminder" or "receipt" for the person that just registered. This "receipt" needs to contain 4 data fields from the 8 data field DB. I need it to only pull the record being saved as to act as the receipt/reminder for the time that they are to return. They pick this time themselves as they register. This is an Access 2003 DB

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Simply have a unique id in the table (it could be a column set up as AutoNumber). Have that column on the form as a bound column from the table. Then when you print from the form use the OpenReport method and put the unique id in the where parameter of the OpenReport method. The report will print only for that unique id.

    This assumes that the field on the form is bound to the table and is the same name: DoCmd.OpenReport "name", acViewNormal, , "[Group #]= " & Me![Group #] "name" is the name of the report. Me![Group #] is a way of referencing the field on the form. This assumes that you used AutoNumber so Group# is a long integer. If it is alpha numeric, you must enclose quotes like this: DoCmd.OpenReport "name", acViewNormal, , "[Group #]= '" & Me![Group #] & "'"
