Tips & Tricks

Keeping the Ribbon tab selected when a report is cancelled

If you open a report which has it's own ribbon then, when the application returns focus to the form, in A2007 the form ribbon always returns to the first tab, irrespective of where it was before you opened the report. This can be particularly frustrating when there is no data to display and the report is cancelled by using (e.g.) the report's 'NoData' event.

There is a simple, not to say trivial, remedy:

  1. Remove the ribbon from the report's ribbonname property
  2. Add the ribbon in the report's On Load event: Me.RibbobName = "YourReportRibbonName"
