Linking data to subforms

Linking data to subforms

Linking data to subforms

(OP)
I use a form currently that kicks off a series of querys that processes data into reports, and then sends the reports to the intranet. When I kick off the command button on the form, the code runs but brings up a message box requiring an entry of the data run date.  This occurs several times due to multiple tables being run.  I would like add a subform that allows the user to enter the date once, and link this back to the various queries used in the processing.  Making the subform is easy enough, but I need some advice as to the linking part, i.e. should this be done in code, or will the subform properties allow me to link from there?

Thanks.

RE: Linking data to subforms

Just declare a golbal variable in a standard module like gRunDate or somthing.

Then you could provide a field (RunDate) on your form for the user to enter a date, in the before update event of the field add some code to test the value if you need to restrict the enterd date, then if ok just set the gRunDate = me.RunDate
Now the global value is available to each of your queries.
