An easy one... at least, I guess!

Is there any way to hide some records (not a column, but records) according to the value of a field?

Example:

I've got the field "TheStatus" in a form, and if the value is "Not Yet Assigned", then I don't want to see those records.  But I want to see all the others.

You just need to set your selection formula for the view to show only the documents you want.

The formula would be this in your example:

TheStatus != "Not Yet Assigned"

Just under the line
SELECT Form = "MyForm";

Ok, yes

Change the formula to this:

SELECT Form = "MyForm" & TheStatus != "Not Yet Assigned"

On the dot HFB. BUt, I would add something. THis would be better when combined with the Form slection formula (Otherwise barbotte will have to post another question) ;)

SELECT FORM = "Form_Name" & TheStatus != "Not Yet Assigned"
