Would like to know if there is a way to have a command button on a (multi Table ) one form that will print a report of current data that was entered. I currently have a command to open report run off a query with parameter value windows. That too many steps would like simplify it.

RE: Print command button on form

Use the OpenReport method of the DoCmd command.  For example

    stDocName = "Your reportName"
    stAccount = "[Field1] = Forms!frmName!Field1"
    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acPreview, stAccount

This will open the report from your form, using the criteria you set in the variable stAccount (or whatever you name it).


RE: Print command button on form

Thank you Lightning I will give that a try.
