Print several reports based on criteria in a form

I am cross posting this in both the Forms and the Reports forums.

Let me apologize in advance because this is going to be somewhat
scattered and somewhat hypothetical at the moment because I don't have
a clue where to begin.  I will do my best to make it coherent.

I have a form (frmBids) with two sub forms (sbfBids & sbfBidSubs).
The main form has several fields regarding the Bid Proposal --- Bid
Contact, Bid Company, Due Date, Bid Contract (Prime or Sub), among
others.  The sbfBids subform is visible all the time.  This sub form
includes information on the work that is being requested to be
performed.  The sbfBidSubs is only visible if Bid Contract has 'SUB'
selected.  This sub form allows for the user to enter in other
companies that are bidding on the same bid proposal and my company
would be a sub contractor to one of these companies.

Ok so here is what I want to do with the form, now that I have all the
background information presented.

I want to be able to click a print button on the form and have it
print out a Bid Proposal report (rptBidProposal) and automatically
fill out all the information regarding the bid (Name, Company, Job,
Due Date, etc).  And if it is a sub contract, have it print the
information from the sbfBidSubs sub form.  Then repeat the report for
each name listed in the sub form.  So if the bid has 4 separate
companies listed in the sbfBidSubs sub form, I want it to
automatically print out four separate Bid Proposals, changing the
contact info for each of the companies.

I hope this makes sense and moreover, I hope there is someone out here
who can assist me.
Thank you in advance!

Smartlist report #3
In the SmartList reports, there is one called Account Summary, with a field called Balance for Calculation. That field has a drop down with (2) choices: Net Change or Period Balance.

Report from Access 2003 to 2007 problem
I have converted a database designed in 2003 to 2007. One of the reports unfortunately does not work the same as it did in 2003. The report generates invoices and on the form I had put in a text box with the Control Source property set to [Enter Invoice Date] which brings up a dialog box when the report is run asking the user to put in a date. This works ok in 2003 but comes up as #Error in 2007 in the report generated. In 2007 report design, the text box has a green triangle on it indicating an error "Invalid Control Property: Control Source" & "No such field in t...

TCP/IP printing
Hello, I have a networking question. I have a print device with a static IP address on one network. A computer on another network can connect to the printer (NBT is enabled and so is LPR) and the drivers are installed but cannot print.

Probably a better question to ask a networking forum but hey. Thanks can you access the printer through the printer IP address? -- ashvin :D Just chill -pls post your feedback on...

CHtmlView and Printing
Hi Everyone, The CHtmlView is giving me alot of head aches. Here is what I am doing. I am opening an XML file (being formatted using XLST) in a hidden CHtmlView and printing it. Here is how the process goes: 1. I create the XML file on the fly. 2. load the XML file in to CHtmlView. 3. Once loaded I tell it to print the resulting HTML page. 4, I need to delete XML file after the printing is done. (this is the problem). I can't figure out how to find out when the CHtmlView is done printing. CHtmlView::OnFilePrint is asynchronous. And CHtmlView doesn't tell me that it is currently p...

Incorrect Tax-Inclusive Reports
Has anyone else noticed that the tax-inclusive reports in HQ and Store Manager give false information? The sales totals after tax are based on (TransactionEntry.Price * TransactionEntry.Quantity) - TransactionEntry.SalesTax. The totals of (price * quantity) already exclude tax! They are taking it out twice, which gives falsely lower sales totals. I have corrected the report for myself, but before I contact Microsoft, I would be interested to know if anyone else has brought it to their attention. price column is including tax on our set up base on the price source. So the report...

Problems with printing
Dear all I have an application, which has been working without problems for the last 7 years. The application has some printing capabilities.

But then, when I select the CM4370, the app crashes again, even if I do not press OK. Even if I choose to not show the print setup dialog, and j...
