Report: How to hide field if empty?

1 New Member
In a report, I have fields for customer's address, Address 1, Address 2, Address 3. Very few people use all 3 fields. I am looking for some code to say..."if the field is null, don't print...ie. don't leave a blank line before you show me the city/state/zip. How can I do this?

I fail to see how it would have any effect on the layout of the report, the text box on the report would reference the calculated field in the query. You are simply moving the calculations from the form to the query upon which it is based.

You're absolutely right Chris.

Put it down to a brain-fart. It's late and I'm tired. I was (mis) remembering that the report was working with multiple controls, but clearly it wasn't.

PS. Like you, I'd generally do it that way. In this case though, help for handling the ControlSource of a control in their existing report was requested (and provided). Your point is well worth making though, nevertheless.

I have a report generated via an ID selection made in a dropdown on a form. The report filters by an on click event in a preview report button on the form. Everything in the report, including subreports, filters perfectly, with the exception of a running sum DLookup field on the main report. This field looks up a value in a foreign table. I'm not clear where I'm supposed to be filtering this field, since it obviously isn't picking up the...

I am working with a basic access form for a payroll system and need to modify it such that if an employee worked overtime, then their overtime payrate and hours show up on the report below their regular payrate and hours. Ex: 40.00 hours @ $77.00/hr 5.00 hours @ $102.00/hr If an employee's overtime hours = 0, then the overtime payrate and hours fields should not be visible on the report. Ex: 40.00 hours @ $77.00/hr

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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,...
