hi sorry I sort of know now (recordset)

P: 27
Someone told me you can send from a f orm to a new table using a recordset, I'm researching on the internet, but I can't find any understandable examples. I have 2 drop down combos down, and a print button, I'd like to execute the recordset in the print button prior to printing.

I don't follow...
A form that is bound to a table will automatically update the table with what is typed into the form.

A report bound to the table will print whatever's in the table.

I'm not sure what you're asking.

What rabbit said is correct however if you are trying to track items that are printed simply add a hidden yes/no filed and set that once they print.

Does this help?

I sort of gave up on that attempt, I have two tables each giving one drop down box it's selections, upon selecting I now have it passing the selection to a string value. I want to send this string value back to a new table now, called table print. Is this possible?

I stand by my original statement...

Set the form's record source to table print.
