How to set initial selections of controls in a MS access report on its load?
I have a MS Access 2007 report which is based on a query that has some parameters that can be modified by selecting values in listboxes that are in the header of the report. The flow is as follows: A user selects parameters in listboxes A user clicks "generate" button. I have an OnClick event attached to it, which goes through all the listboxes, picks up their selections, puts together an SQL statement and sets it as source for the underlying MS Access query. The only way I could find to properly refresh the report was to first do Me.Requery and then close and reopen the report. Just Me.Requery was not enough. After the report is reopened, all the selections in the listboxes are lost. But I have them saved in a variable and I would be able to set them back, but I cannot find a suitable event. I tried Report Load, Open, Current events - none of them worked. For Current event, I see that the selection gets set but then is deselected immediately. Could anybody suggest me what other event could I try or maybe a slight different approach all together?
Seems to me this one could be easier by giving the user a form with those list box controls, let her make her selections there, and then pass the selection criteria as the WhereCondition parameter to DoCmd.OpenReport. From that page, the WhereCondition parameter is "A string expression that's a valid SQL WHERE clause without the word WHERE".
