    I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

    My question is as follows:

    Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

    Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

    Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.


    Thanks,


    Hash

    could't you just add a field in the record for printed?

    Then if printeed true, show warning, else show printable form.
