Isn't it what your display show in "Detail Section" ? What you intend to change > a field's value or free text value?

Sorry ! You can not change dynamically the value of text box in the data report but you can change the label caption !!! I think it is the drawback of Data report !!!

you can do this in the sql statement.
what database do you use?
for access db use the iif and or switch statement
IIf(expr, truepart, falsepart)

ex select iif(fieldA= 1,"Red","Green") as myfield from tablea

you may use the switch statement.
Switch(expr-1, value-1[, expr-2, value-2 … [, expr-n,value-n]])

ex select Switch([fielda]="1","one",[fielda]="2","two"",[fielda]>"2","other") AS myfield , FROM tablea

The problem with the switch statement is that the function returns a null if none of the conditions are found.  And sometimes it is difficult to have an other statement in this case use the iif and the switch together

SELECT iif(Switch([fielda]="1","one",[fielda]="2","two") is not null,Switch([fielda]="1","one",[fielda]="2","two"),"BLANKS" )AS myfield FROM tablea
