Display label when subreport empty

I have a report that contains a subreport.  When the subreport does not have any data to display I would like a label to appear with a message saying "No New Clients".  I have the label on the subreport with the visible property set to false.  I also have the below code.  This works when I run the subreport separately, but when I run it with the main report it does not work.  Any suggestions?
Private Sub Report_NoData(Cancel As Integer)
    Me.lblNNC.Visible = True
End Sub

Open in new window

Add  a label to the report behind the the subreport which has the caption of
"No Data To Report"

In the Format event procedure for the section that contains the subreport, do..

if Me.rptsub.Report.HasData = true then
    Me.rptsub.visible =  True
    Me. lblNoData.visible = False
else
   Me.rptsub.visible =  False
   Me. lblNoData.visible = True
end if

Use your own names for the label and the subreport, of course, instead of rptsub and lblnodata.

Put the label on the main report behind the subreport and use this code:
Private Sub Report_NoData(Cancel As Integer)
    Me.Parent.lblNNC.Visible = True
    Me.Visible = False
End Sub
