    Default SELECTING RECORDS TO PRINT

    I HAVE SETUP A SIMPLE DATABASE. I CAN SEARCH FOR RECORDS IN THE FORM VIEW BUT WHEN I SWITCH TO REPORT TO PRINT OUT THE X NUMBER OF RECORDS THEY DO NOT APPEAR. ALSO WHEN NO RECORDS ARE SELECTED AND I GO INTO THE REPORT, ONLY THE FIRST RECORD SHOWS.

    Mark, it's not necessary to shout to get attention in this forum :) We hear you just fine.

    Check the properties of your report layout. You have options there to define specific filters or orderings... or to base the report on the currently selected records. Open the report in design mode; click Report; click Detail Properties; click Record tab.

    If you select 'base report on currently selected records', then save the report layout.

    Then open the same table or set upon which your report is based. Run your query or quick filter or whatever, to select the desired records. then close the table and run the report. If your report is based on the same table or set as the table or set you just queries you're report will include only the currently selected records.

    For this to work the identity of the table or set must match exactly. if your report is based on a set, and you query a single table (instead of the set), then it won't work.
