This code should do it:
Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)

   If Nz(Me![Second] <> "" Then
      Me![txtFirst].Visible = True
   Else
      Me![txtFirst].Visible = False
   End If
      
End Sub

In the meantime I found the place for the code.
Please tell me if I add another field what would be the code:
1st control is visible if the 2nd control or the 3rd control is not null or empty and 1st control is not visible if the 2nd control and the 3rd control is null or empty?
Thanks a lot

<Points to Helen if this is what you need>
(Just trying to help out)
;-)

If Nz(Me![Second]) <> ""  Or Nz(Me![Third])<> "" Then
      Me![txtFirst].Visible = True
   Else
      Me![txtFirst].Visible = False
   End If
