Hello all,

I have a report that displays four pieces of data by default, but two
of these fields are not neccessary for all people to see.

I have made a form that gives the user the choice to select what data
to display when the report is being run. After the selection has been
made on the form, the report is opened in design mode, saved, closed
and reopened it in preview mode. I was wondering if there is a cleaner
way to modify the report than opening it in deisgn, and then reopening
it in preview mode?

Tim
