Pass date value from subtable to query

Post by scottb »

Hi again,

I am trying to help with an inherited mess.

Form is “Table1”
Record source for the form is a table also named “Table1”
There is a table included at the bottom of form Table1: Object source is “Table.Donation”
Table.Donation is linked to the record source Table1 by field “SER_NUM”
Table.Donation includes several fields, the one I need is “DepDate”

There is a button on the form that opens a report “RptIndividualDonarRcpt”
The record source for the report is: “Qry_PRINT_INDIVIDUAL_Donation_REPORT”
The query has a parameter for DepDate, prompting the user to enter the date (##/##/####) of the record to include in the report.

Is it possible to select the desired record in Table.Donation and have DepDate value for that record pass directly to the query so a date doesn’t have to be manually entered?

Hopefully this makes some sense. Rebuilding the DB isn’t an option at this time.
Thank you for any assistance.
-Scott

Think this might work. Changed the DepDate parameter to [Forms]![Table1]![Child42].[Form]![DepDate].
I'll update if it does to close.
Thanks.

It works but when I try to run another record it retains the previously selected records DepDate. If I close the form and reopen it all is well. Is there a way to "clear" the previous DepDate value?
Thank you!

Do you close the report in between?

The report isn't showing as open but when I select another record and run again it appears as though it never closed.

Without seeing the database it's impossible for me to know what causes the problem.

I figured it out. I was seeing this when I was exiting out of the sendobject procedure. I moved the close report code to after the error handling and now everything is working. Thanks again for all the help.

Good article and thank you for sharing but not related. Working on a db used on a stand alone pc. Thank you Hans.
