Report.OnApplyFilter Property (Access)

Sets or returns the value of the On Apply Filter box in the Properties window of a report. Read/write String.

Version Added: Access 2007

expression .OnApplyFilter

expression A variable that represents a Report object.

This property is helpful for programmatically changing the action Microsoft Access takes when an event is triggered. For example, between event calls you may want to change an expression's parameters, or switch from an event procedure to an expression or macro, depending on the circumstances under which the event was triggered.

The ApplyFilter event occurs when a filter is applied or removed.

The OnApplyFilter value will be one of the following, depending on the selection chosen in the Choose Builder window (accessed by clicking the Build button next to the On Apply Filter box in the report's Properties window):

  • If Expression Builder is chosen, the value will be "=expression", where expression is the expression from the Expression Builder window.

  • If Macro Builder is chosen, the value is the name of the macro.

  • If Code Builder is chosen, the value will be "[Event Procedure]".

If the On Apply Filter box is blank, the property value is an empty string.

The following example associates the OnApplyFilterproperty for the "Catalog" report to the event "Report_ApplyFilter".

Reports("Catalog").OnApplyFilter = "[Event Procedure]"
