Report based on current date.

I want to run a transaction report that when opens and filters the transaction date for the current date. I wish to do this with just a 'click of the button' and not have the user to enter the date to run the report. Is there any way to do this using an event procedure? or what could I use? and what would the code be. Thanks in advance for any help!

RE: Report based on current date.

I would use a form with a text box and a command button. The text box default value should be set to =Date() so it displays the current date. Name the text box "txtDate". Then add a command button to open the report. The code might look like:

CODE --> vba

Dim strWhere as String
strWhere = "[transaction date] = #" & Me.txtDate & "#"
DoCmd.OpenReport "Your Report Name Here", acViewPreview, , strWhere
