Hello Gang,

When calling up a group of reports, is it possible to have a date field in each record updated with todays date ?

If so, could you give me an idea of setting up the process.

Thanks much,

Possibly, what do you mean by "calling up a group of reports"?

Do you want to populate a field in a table when a report is printed? Do you want a certain date to show in a report?

What are you trying to accomplish?

When calling up ONE report from a specified group of records, is it possible to update the " date " field in each of the records selected for the report ?

Perhaps others have a better solution, but for me I use a script to run the report. the script then uses a ui_msg_box() to find out if the report ran successfully. If so, the script then steps through the records and updates those in the same range that was just printed. -- t
