Using the On Double Click Event. Open Record.
Learn how to make a listbox that's got all of the reports you need to print on a regular basis. All your users have to do is click on a report and then click on a "print" button, and voila. There's your report. Nice and easy to maintain and update, too.
Avery from Mesa, Arizona (a Gold Member) asks: Is there a way I can create a list box or a combo box that displays a list of the available reports in my database. I don't need all of them, just a handful. I'd like to make it easy for the users to pick one and click a button to print it. I also don't want to have to add buttons to a menu every time I make a new report (which is often). Help?
I'll show you how to do the same thing without having to maintain a table. We'll loop through the Reports collection in VBA and use that to populate the list. I'll show you how to add a Description property attribute to a report for the display text. Fun stuff!
