    Default Sales Reports Dialog Form in Northwind Database

    Hi Ami,

    I assume you are adding a parameter prompt to a query
    which underlies your report. To make the parameter ;look
    at a value on a form add a reference to the forms textbox
    in place of the parameter. For example:

    [Please Enter A Value]

    becomes

    Forms![NameOfYourForm]![NameOfTextBox]
