Using MS Access/Date Range Report


I have constructed a database containing many records, including a completion date field. My problem is getting a custom report to generate, showing only those records with the completion dates specified. I would like a report generated as opposed to a query.

I created a form with 2 unbound text boxes (beginningdate and endingdate). I also created a query so the button on my form runs the query based on the two dates entered. However, I would prefer to have a more user-friendly and printable report generate as opposed to the query.

I am using Access 2007 and have tried a few options with the Where Condition in the Embedded Macro using the OpenReport command, but can't seem to figure it out.

I would appreciate your help.

Use the Report Wizard to create a report based on your query. Then change the code behind the button to run the report instead of the query.

If you only want completed records then set the criteria for the completed date field to NOT Null.

Hope this helps,
