Default Message Box for a Report

I have a form that has options to choose different reports. I want to add a
comment to certain reports.
What I would like to happen is when I click on a particular option a message
box appears and the message box has " Enter the comments below." and then you
have a box to enter the text you want. Once you enter the text then it will
print the chosen report with this comment on the report.
Would I also have to have a text box on the report that will accept this text?

Or do you have any suggestions of an easier way or the proper way to achieve
this.

Thanks,
Curt

Best would be to use a textbox on the form that you're already using to get
the information for the report. Just make the textbox visible, with a popup
message box to tell the user he/she needs to fill in the info in the
textbox.

Otherwise, you could use the InputBox function to pop up a message box that
allows the user to type in a reply (see Help).
