    Hello, I have ctreated a Report date Range Form already and I would like a
    pop up box to appear when I open a particular report to request the user to
    enter a start date and an end date. How do I do this? Thank you!

    The simplest way is to use parameters in the report's underlying query. For
    example, in the criteria row under the FromDate column, put [Enter From
    Date]. When the report runs, it will prompt the user for a date.

    Create an unbound form.

    Add 2 unbound text controls.
    Set their format to a valid date format.
    Name them "StartDate" and "EndDate"

    Add a Command Button to the form.
    Code the button's click event:

    Me.Visible = False

    Name this form 'ParamForm'.

    As criteria in the query (that is the Report's Record Source) date
    field write:

    Between forms!Paramform!StartDate and forms!ParamForm!EndDate

    Next, code the report's Open event:
    DoCmd.OpenForm "ParamForm", , , , , acDialog

    Code the report's Close event:
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "ParamForm"

    When ready to run the report, open the report.
    The form will open and wait for the entry of the starting and ending
    dates wanted.
    Click the command button and then report will run.
    When the report closes, it will close the form.
