Getwrows method

Hi there, how can I use the getrows method in DAO to populate unbound textboxes in a report?

RE: Getwrows method

Can you give us some context as to why you are planning to use getrows in a report rather than simply binding records to a report as a Record Source?

RE: Getwrows method

Even if staying unbounded, why getrows over other dao objects such as the fields collection of the recordset object?

RE: Getwrows method

If I think to do that I would add a subform. Then make invisible on all pages except first and last. Stilll do not see any possible relation to getrows.

RE: Getwrows method

I think a subreport should work depending on if sections or multiple records from the main report would be overlayed by the second set of data. You could create a standard recordset and use the Me.Print method to place data anywhere you want on the page.
