If not data then I messagebox and I am trying to do a DoCmd.Close and I get this error.  How do I stop the processing and allow this to close.  It is a report.

i would add that u trap the error that will be caused by the Cancel = True statement.

the on click event of the button with which u open the report (i assume a button is used, but u can use this also if u use e.g. a combobox' after update event):


Private Sub cmdOpenReport_Click()
On Error GoTo ErrHandler
 
    DoCmd.OpenReport "YourReport", acPreview

ErrHandler:
    If Err.Number = 2501 Then
        Err.Clear
        MsgBox "The report has no data..."
    End If
   
End Sub

cheers

I tried using the Cancel = True after the message box but this did not stop the processing.

bostonroxx,  the messagebox function you showed was outside the scope of the report.  You need to put

   Cancel=True

inside the NoData() Event on the actual Report.
