InputParameters is set, but Access still prompts for parameter values...

Hi everyone, I have an Access 2002 ADP file with a report that calls
on a SQL Server 2000 stored procedure. The report is opened from a
form named frmReportList. The report's Report_Open event should be
setting the parameters for the procedure call, but when I call on the
report, Access still prompts me for values to the stored procedure. Am
I setting the input parameters correctly? Is Report_Open the right
place to do this? How can I stop Access from prompting me to enter
stored procedure parameters and set those parameter values instead
from VBA? Thanks everyone!

Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
Me.InputParameters = "@StartDate
datetime=Forms!frmReportList!txtStartDate, @EndDate
datetime=Forms!frmReportList!txtEndDate"
End Sub

Hello Gus

Try using this:

Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
Me.InputParameters = _
"@StartDate datetime=" & Forms!frmReportList!txtStartDate & " , " & _
" @EndDate datetime=" & Forms!frmReportList!txtEndDate
End Sub

Or, if you want, write your original string

@StartDate datetime=Forms!frmReportList!txtStartDate, @EndDate
datetime=Forms!frmReportList!txtEndDate

in design time. When you open the report, it will evaluate both
Forms!frmReportList!txtStartDate and Forms!frmReportList!txtEndDate, and
will use their values in the Stored Procedure

If the location of the parameters doesn't change and since the
InputParameters refer to a form's controls, why not put that string in
the report's InputParameters property instead of doing it using VBA?
Also, the form has to be open & have data in the controls to work. Is
the form "frmReportList" open?
