Hi

How can i hide a text box on a report if the value of another text box is specific?

I have tried this on a open statment:

If Me.BagOrKg = "Kg" Then
Me.Overweight.Visible = False
Else
Me.Overweight.Visible = True

I know this is wrong - i'm trying though :)

use the Format event of the section the controls are in ... you also need to make sure your control names aere different than the name of the field they are bound to.

Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
If Me.txtBagOrKg.Value = "Kg" Then
    Me.txtOverweight.Visible = False
Else
    Me.txtOverweight.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

Well, the the BagOrKg field is on the Report Header and the rest is on the Report Footer?

then use the footer's format event
Private Sub ReportFooter_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
