1st control is visible if the 2nd control or the 3rd control are not null or empty and 1st control is not visible if the 2nd control and the 3rd control are null or empty?
Thanks a lot

You can likely use the Format or Print event of the section hosting those controls (i.e. the Details section, for example), and do something like this:

Me.Control1.Visible = Nz(Me.Control2, 0) <>0 OR Nz(Me.Control3,0) <>)

I think I already answered a similar question.  Here is the code with another condition for the 3rd control:
Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)

   If Nz(Me![LastName]) <> "" Or Nz(Me![FirstName]) <> "" Then
      Me![txtSSN].Visible = True
   ElseIf Nz(Me![LastName]) = "" And Nz(Me![FirstName]) = "" Then
      Me![txtSSN].Visible = False
   End If
      
End Sub
