Re: timestamp when a button is clicked

Maybe I'm not explaining this well enough and for that I'm sorry.

I'm starting to think that the form which contains the button to open the report is closed after you click it. For that reason the variable would be set to nothing. In addition if you don't explicitly dimension your variables with "Option Explicit" at the top of each module, it would assume the variable as a date and default it to current date?

Anyway, the best course of action is to add the variable I was speaking of, mdtmTimeStamp, to a module. When the report is finished running, DateDiff function will be looking at a date different than the current date/time.
