Access Report help

I am trying to create an access report which only displays the name of an author of a publication. I created a database for publications and presentations within my dept. The problem is some publications have multiple authors. I want to create a get report button which you indicate an author name and the report will only display that author's publications. Any ideas?


RE: Access Report help

In the report's OnOpen event you could set its .Filter to "AuthorName like '*" & [SelectedAuthorName] & "*'".

FYI there is an Access Report forum that may provide more answers (FAQs)...

I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger.
Then it hit me.
