Set Control Source based on day of month (1st through 31st)

For a field on a report, I'm trying to use an If/Then statement to set
the Control Source depending on the day of the month. I need one
Control Source for days 1-14 and another for 15-31. To do this I put
this into the report's open event:
If (Day(date) < 15) Then
here are the control source statements and the Else statement.
End If

On one report this works fine, but after I copy and paste the code into
another report, when I try to open the report it gives the error:
Runtime Error 2427
You entered an expression that has no value.
After I click the debug button, it highlights the If/Then line:
If (Day(date) < 15) Then

I tried setting the problem report to the same query that the other
report uses (they have many of the same fields and their queries are
very similar) but it still gives the error. I made sure that I'm
putting it into the report's Open section. For testing, I tried
disabling the controlsource setting line and just using a command that
changes the fore color, but same results.

**The word "date" in the If/Then line above is not a field on the
report, it's the Access variable for the date. I tried to make the line
If (Day(date()) < 15) Then
but as soon as my cursor leaves the line it changes back to this:
If (Day(date) < 15) Then

Anyone know what would be causing this?

I got this fixed several days ago and I believe that the problem was
that the If/Then statement was used for field formatting and field
enabling/disabling statements. I moved the whole bunch from the Report
Open section to the Detail Format section and it started working.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
