Problem with 1 Query with Criteria feeding another query


R

Robbro

I have one query summarizing data that then feeds another query that begins
to work on it. I made a form to filter the very first query in my process by
date, right now I have 2 items begdate and enddate. I added the date field
of the underlying table to my first query and in design view on "Total"
selected "where" and in the criteria section added
"<[Forms]![frmFilterForm]![enddate] And >[Forms]![frmFilterForm]![startdate]"
Opening this Query works fine and results in the correct info being shown.

When I try to open any query which is based on the first one above I get an
error about Access not recognizing [Forms]![frmFilterForm]![enddate] as a
valid field, name or expression?

Nevermind, found it. I did search the forums before posting but not
thoroughly enough I guess.

I had to declare my form fields as parameters in my crosstab query.
Not sure what that means but it works :)
