Need to change a control source for a report

49 New Member
I am trying to change the control source of a control on a report depending on a selection on the form where the report was called from.
Here is the code i have tried:
Private Sub Report_Open(Can cel As Integer)
If (Forms![frm_Control Center]!fundfltr = "GO") Then
Reports![Copy of rpt_Projlist]![DM levy].Control Source = [GO]
Reports![Copy of rpt_Projlist]![DM levy_Label].Caption = "GO"
End If
End Sub

The syntax looks ok at first glance. you did not say what happens when you run your code, so I am guessing that your problem is that the form you referenced for your parameter is not open, and therefore, the "if" statement is not executed properly. Your report should work if you close the form after the report opens.

Hello, Please help me I'm still a newbie. I have an unbound text box on a report that I would like to build a expression to display it on the report. Something like txtboxSearchCriteria = !! in the OnPage Event and sometime this will work and sometime it will not. Is there a better simpler way?

Hello Access Developers, I'd like to know if it is possible to perform a count in an expression that defines a control source. My report is based on a query. In my report, I want a text box to display the number of times a certain value appears in a certain field (i.e. perform a ‘count'). I will be doing this for many values in many fields so do not wish to have scores of queries to build my report.

I have a lot of respect for David Fenton and Allen Browne, but I don't understand why people who know how to write code to completely replace a front end do not write something that will automate the code that implements managing unbound controls on forms given the superior performance of unbound controls in a client/server environment. I can easily understand a newbie using bound controls or someone with a tight deadline. I guess I need...

I have a database with four table. In one of the tables, I use about five lookup fields to get populate their dropdown list. I have read that lookup fields are really bad and may cause problems that are hard to find. The main problem I am having right now is that I have a report that is sorted by one of these lookup fields and it only displays the record's ID number. When I add the source table to the query it makes several records...
