ComboBox to select various records?

Can a comboBox or something similar be created on a form to select various
reports. I have 10 reports that I would like to select from a list for
previewing on a form...Thanks...Randy

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. You can set a combo or
list box to a query that returns a list of the reports objects defined
in the database, though I prefer to use my own table of reports so that
I can give the reports "friendly names", exclude subreports, and control
the list order. What exactly is it you want to do?

I have 10 reports that I would like to select and review from a form. A
list would be nice to select an individual report for viewing.

If you want to display all reports defined in the database, you can use
this as the rowsource for a combo or listbox:

SELECT MSysObjects.Name FROM MsysObjects
WHERE (Left$([Name],1)<>"~")
AND (MSysObjects.Type)= -32764
ORDER BY MSysObjects.Name;

Or else you can create your own table of reports, and set the rowsource
to a query of that table.
