Dynamically assign recordsource in Report

I have a series of reports that open on a Splash screen. After they are opened I wish to change each of their recordsource properties via code to a parameter query which asks for 2 dates.When I check the design mode of the reports they still have the same recordsource. Is it due to this database is in Access 95. I am sure you can access this property but why isn't it changing?? TIA

RE: Dynamically assign recordsource in Report

You might find more help posting to the Access forum, I've never used version 95. But here's a sugestion: rather than change the recordsouce property to a parameter query, why not make your splashscreen into an input form and collect the input there? That way you can build comboboxes for your users to select appropriate values from.
