Report TimeOut

P: n/a

I would like to make a user report automatically close after it has been
left open in preview mode for more than 1 hour. I don't see a timer
control or timer event in the report properties. Is there some way to
make a report auto-close (time-out) in MS Access?

You could open a small hidden form using the Open event of the report and
use that form's Timer event to close both the report and the form itself
after an hour. I would also close this form in the Close event of the
report in case the user closes it manually.
