trigger handling problem....

hi...i have a problem: in one of my reports, i have to calculate data stored in controls. it works fine, but in a where-clause in OnOpen() i have to access a data field - but at this time the fields haven't been filled yet :(

as far as i know the only possibility changing controlSources is in OnOpen()....

...is there any little trick which tells access to fill the fields BEFORE OnOpen() is called?

thx a lot...

RE: trigger handling problem....

Have you tried the OnFormat, or OnPrint of the detail sections, or a header?

Make sure the properties window is open to the Events, and click on the Gray Detail bar, you will get the events for that section.

I have had alot of code work here, that didn't work in the OnOpen of the report.
