atkinslg,

the TQREXpr has a OnPrint method.
You can look at the value (string) that is to be printed and using the val(String,Float,Result) procdure you can compare it to floating point values etc...
i.e.

Procedure myForm.myExprPrint(sender: TObject;
  var Value: String);
var tc : integer;
     Fval : Double;
begin
     val(Value,Fval,tc);  (* convert string to floating point *)
     if tc = 0 then          (* convert ok *)
        if checkthevalue(FVal) = resultNotOK then
           Value := '0';       (* or something *)
end;


Hows that?

An even better way is the one sent to me by Christopher Miller:

The "Value" property of a TQRExpr comonent is of type TQREvResult, which is
defined in qrprntr.pas.

You can check "Value.Kind" to see what the datatype is.  The following
table shows how to retrieve the results of the expression based on the
value of "Value.Kind"

   If Value.Kind = resInt then the results of the expression are in
Value.IntResult

   If Value.Kind = resDouble then the results of the expression are in
Value.DblResult

   If Value.Kind = resString then the results of the expression are in
Value.StrResult (defined as string[255])

   If Value.Kind = resBool then the results of the expression are in
Value.BooResult

   If Value.Kind = resError then the expression had an error
