Subreports - transparent background?
Posted on 2005-05-11
I have a report that contains numerous sub reports.
A couple of the subreports sometimes contain no data - and are therefore not shown on the main report. This leaves a blank space on the overall report which I would like to fill with the message - "No Data Available".
I had thought the easiest way to do this was to put a label on the main report behind these subreports - so that when the subreport was present the label was hidden - and when it wasn't there it was visible. However, the subreports seem to be "transparent" so that you can always see the label in the background.
