    Default Selecting records for Print

    I have a client and sales tracking database where the primary linking key is a random number generated by the system. I need to print client reports based on last name and I am currently using an ASK variable. I anticipate in the future that I may have clients with the same last names. The current system selects both records for print. How do I select a specific record if this occurs?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    There are a number of ways but off handtry these:
    1) Add another ask variable for the first name and/or MI. 2) I presume each client could have a customer number and the ASk->var could ask for the customer number.
    3) Develop a popup list from which to select the client.

    Thanks Ken,
    The pop up list is the right direction. Is there a manual that would expain the code for this?
    Thanks again,
