Hello,

I have an SRS report that shows customers and the things they bought from us. My report is grouped on Customer and then the detail lines are an item they bought from us (the item number), date, amount, etc. So it would look like this:

Customer Smith
     Item 1     10/22/10    245.00    
     Item 4     11/05/10    500.00
Customer Jones
     Item 20   10/01/10    750.00
     Item 14   09/15/10    800.00
Customer Doe
     etc.

My end users can select a date range when they run this report. If the customer hasn't bought anything within the date range, the line with their name (group header record) is still showing up and I would like to suppress that. I have tried conditionally hiding the row visibility and the group visibility based on a detail field, but that is not working. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Put an expression on the visiblity of the table which depends on a count or sum of one of your data items.

Still not working, see attachment.

Also, I had this question on another post, and then closed the question because it wasn't being answered properly. After I closed it, you responded with a fix regarding a filter. I tried the filter but that didn't work either.

Okay...it wasnt clear from your question that you are using a tablix and not a table so that changes the solution.  

When you look at your dataset is the InvSale_Amount all null?  If so then the sum will not equal zero.  Here are a few options to try

=IsNothing(InvSal_Amount.Value)

=sum(IIF(IsNothing(InvSal_Amount.Value),0,InvSal_Amount.Value))

More specific please. You gave me a couple of options above, but I have no idea where to put them. Is it an expression for group visibility? Row visibility? Or something else?
