My user wants to have the replace say "No Data" on it when there are no records to report, not just get a message that no data is available, they need an actual report that indicates so.  So, how do I change the underlying query for the report when there is no data to report on?

in the report Nodata event show the label

private sub Report_NoData(Cancel As Integer)

Me.lblNoData.Visible = True
End Sub

Yes, I need a message on the report that indicates there is no data for the report.  I am going to try Cap's suggestion.  Be right back.
