How to open directly to a report?

P: n/a
I've developed an interoffice system that has 2 generic interfaces;
user and supervisor. What I'd like to happen is to have the user
interface open directly to an input form (easily done) and have the
supervisor interface open directly to a report (not so easy from what
I've seen). I've created 2 separate front-end dbs for each so for the
user I did the usual for the form and it works great. How do I go
about having the supervisor interface open to the report without
fooling with a switchboard?

Thanks
Andrew

While looking at all the reports in the report tab..drag the report to your
desktop...

Now..when you click on the shortcut...it runs the report...

You can also do this for forms...

Create a macro that calls the report. Call the macro AutoExec
