Hi

I need to create a record source for a report containing calculated fields. Advice I have been given is to do this through creating a temp table from which to serve my report.

Currently I have a control in a Form which has a module generating a value I need for a report but the module cannot work with the report.

Hope I've explained thie right :eek:

Thanks
Frank

Either create a table from the database window, then delete the contents and reload with current data each time it is used or you could use a make table quiery. Most developers opt for the former. This is executed prior to openeing the report.

If you create a make table qry and a delete qry to zero all records before the make table qry is run, then the whole process can be driven from a cmd button. I never let users near the database window as objects can be easily deleted, especially by inexperienced operators.

No need to creat a delete query for a make table query because data will be deleted automatically each time make table query is run
However you may need it for and append query

Yes you are right - the table that the make table qry produces is deleted as the make tbl qry runs.

Are you sure you can't use a simple select query and base the report on the query? You need some complex issues before you need to resort to populating a table to base your report on.
