Yes.  How are you calling the report?

You can pass parameters to the report and use conditional suppression
Open the report
Right Click the section or field you want to suppress
Click FORMAT SECTION (FIELD)
Click the FORMULA button bext to SUPPRESS
Enter a formula that evaluates TRUE when you want to suppress

You could create a parameter field on your report and then create conditional suppression formula that will suppress based on the parameter value.  E.g.:

if {?YourParam} = 1 then
  true
else
  false;

Pass the parameter from your application and that should handle it.
