How to Print a selection of forms from 700+ records

P: 4
Hey guys,

I have currently 700+ Reports in a database and i was printing each client out on their own page with all the relevant information so i can backup our database on paper.

Sadly the printer crapped out halfway through. I dont want to reprint it all as half will be wasted so im wondering if i can somehow select the clients (300-700) and print all them out but leave the rest.

Sadly though i cant seem to do it with any filters.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Nick

Modify the underlying Record Source for the Report and make it reflect only the Records that need to be printed.e.g. [Client_ID] >= 300. When the Report is Opened/Printed, only the appropriate ones will be dumped to the Printer.

Do you mean a single report with 700+ pages?
If so, then Print Preview the report and just select the from and to pages to print.
