Simple Report / Query Question

P: n/a
Hello folks,

I am fairly new to access after using dBase III for the last 10 years.

I have successfully imported dBase tales into access.

I have created a Parameter Query with a start date and end date

and produced a report of income or expenses for the period.

This all works well.

I would like the following to appear in the Report Header.

"From" start date "to" end date.

Can I use the dates I have input in the parameter query as variables in the
report header?

If so How?

Thanks for your help.

Yes. You can refer to the parameters on your report.

For example, if the first one was named [Start Date] in the query, on the
report you can put a text box with Control Source of:
=[Start Date]

Thanks I 've found that out and feel a right idiot for not thinking first.
