Hi Experts

Can someone tell how I change the visibility of a label in the main report, if there are no data in a subreport?

In the form_Curent event procedure for the main form..

If Me.subformname.Form.RecordsetClone.RecordCount = 0 Then
me.labelname.visible = false
else
me.labelname.visible = true
end if
0

the autofinish don't show the .RecordCount option. and i get and error message saying "you entered an expression that has an invalid reference to the property From/report"

should i you the real name of the subreport or the name it has been giving in the main report?
real name "Urpt_Benchmark_oversigt_Mifid" or name in main report "subBenchmark"

If Me.subBenchmark.Form.RecordsetClone.RecordCount = 0 Then
Me.Label114.Visible = False
Me.Label121.Visible = False
Else
Me.Label114.Visible = True
Me.Label121.Visible = True
End If

You must use the name of the subform container control as it it seen on the main form.

Very Sorry -  I have completely misread the Q and have given you an answer for sub- Forms not sub-reports.

For subreports there is a Hasdata property which can be used.

You use the Format event for whichever sectioncontains the label you want to suppress:
Example:
Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)

If Me.subProducts.Report.HasData Then
Me.SupplierID_Label.Visible = True
Else
Me.SupplierID_Label.Visible = False
End If

End Sub
