problem passing dates

problem passing dates

I need help on how to correctly identify dates from a form in queries.

I have

MainForm: ShopOpNavigation (used the wizard)
Subform: frmReports where the user enters txtFromDate and txtToDate

That is fine.

Main Report: Report1 which has only titles for the report, no recordsource
Sub Report: Rpt1 which has it's own recordsource
Sub Report: Rpt2 which has a different recordsource

On the FrmReports, I have a button that opens the selected report with


StrWhere = "[dateadded] between #" & Me.txtfromdate & "# and #" & Me.txtToDate & "#"
 DoCmd.OpenReport "Report1", acViewPreview, , StrWhere 

The filter StrWhere passes to the mainreport fine but not the subreports.
I have read many different ways suggested to pass to the subreport but can't seem to get it to work.
the last one I was going to try was Duane's suggestion on a post

Between Forms!frmX!txtFromDate and Forms!frmX!txtToDate But do not know how to reference it properly.

I Tried:
Between Me!ShopOpNavigation.Form!frmReports.Form!txtFromDate and Me!ShopOpNavigation.Form!frmReports.Form!txtFromDate
I don't get any errors but I also don't get any records

If I run the report by itself (leaving frmreports open), I get an error

The expression On Open you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: Object or class does not support the set of events

RE: problem passing dates

redid the reports for the umpteenth time :)

frmReports, you fill in txtfromdate and txttodate.

Added 2 text boxes
TxtStart control source =[Forms]![frmReports]![txtfromdate]
txtEnd control source =[Forms]![frmReports]![txtToDate]

Recordsource is now: SELECT TblData.DateAdded, TblData.EnteredBy, TblData.SubmittedBy
FROM TblData;
Group is DateAdded

Rpt1 (first subreport)
uses a query that has
Between [Reports]![Report1]![TxtStart] And [Reports]![Report1]![TxtEnd] as criteria for the dateadded field

If I run this from frmreports, it runs fine.
When I run it from the navigation page (ShopOpNavigation), the subreport (rpt1) is blank.
What should I check?

RE: problem passing dates

Finally (after days) of trying different things, I got it to work.

changed the following.

On Report 1
txtStart Control Source is now =[Forms]![ShopOpNavigation]![NavigationSubform].[Form]![txtfromdate]
txtEnd control source is now =[Forms]![ShopOpNavigation]![NavigationSubform].[Form]![txttodate]

had to change subform to navigationsubform.
