Referring to a control in a subform on a subreport

P: 166

I would like to copy a calculated control of an unbound control on to
a report. On my form (F_SampleRequest) i have a button which opens
the report. Here is the code for the button:

Private Sub btnOpenSampleReport_Click()

DoCmd.OpenReport "R_SampleRequest"
'Open Report SampleRequest

Reports!R_SampleRequest.SR_SampleReqRep.Report!txt RptWat =
Reports!R_SampleRequest.SR_SampleRequest.Report!tx tRptWaterReq =

End Sub

My report contains a subreport (SR_SampleReqRep) which has 2 text
boxes (ListWater and txtwaterReqWt) which I wish to be copied into
from the SF_mixSample subform. This code prints the report as opposed
to copying the information into the report. I have used similar code
to copy from one form to the next, so I thought i could do the same
with a report and subreport. How can I copy a value from a subform
to a subreport?

For all information on referring to form controls check:
Forms: Refer to Form and Subform properties and controls
(Much other interesting stuff there!)

On the other hand, when calculated on a form you could also add the calculation in the (sub)report's query and to transfer is needed.

Each of the controls I need are unbound, so I can't refer to them in the query, which is why I just wanted to xfer it.

That link refers to forms but I need the information related to reports.

Just read for form report and subform subreport :-)

I do understand that a calculated value is stored in an unbound field, but the calculation will use fields from a table I assume. That calculation can be placed in a query.
