I am trying to set the visible property of a text box (Issuer) based on whether or not another text box (Security_ID) is visible on the report.  I have the following in my control source:

=IIf(Security_ID.IsVisible,[Issuer],Null)

When I run the report, everything shows up #Error.

Thanks for any help

If Me.Security_ID.Visible = False then
    Me.Issuer.Visible = False
else
    Me.Issuer.Visible = True
End
