QReports ...

I want to print the contents of a table in Qreports, however I want to print certain record fields as "blank" depending on the value of other fields in the same record.

Anyone tell me (perhaps in general terms) how I might go about this.

hi cavalry,

use the event onprint of the field you want to manipulate. Maybe you must use a QRLabel-Component to do this.

In the BeforePrint Event of your Detail band put somthing like this.

if MyTable.FieldByName('MyConditionField').As(some var type) = SomeValue then
  QRLabel1.Caption := 'Blank'
  QRLabel.Caption := MyTable.FieldByName('MyDataField').AsString

You can put the field in the white color

if condition then

in the beforePrint event of your detail band.

Of course if you use a color printer with black paper, it doesn't work !!
