    Records Not Linked (2003 SP3)

    I have a table of DVD information and I want to show all records not linked to a specific actor then display the results in a report. Since the actor's name is not part of the recordset for the report, how do I get the actor's name to display? For example, the report heading could be "Movies That Don't Have 'Tom Hanks' ". I mean, I know I could just type his name in the label but how do I make it dynamic so I can run the report for different actors?

    Thanks

    I presume you are using a form to enter the name of the unwanted actor, so you use ="Movies That Don't Have " & [Forms]![FormName]![NotActor] - NotActor is the name of the unbound field in the form.
    The data extract would look for [Actor] <> [Forms]![FormName]![NotActor]
