In an Access report I need to print a group footer if the date range is more than 1 day. If not I need to suppress the group footer altogether. I have code in the in the On Format property of the group footer where I compare the dates. This appears to work but I do not know the code to suppress the group footer. Your assistance is appreciated. Thanks.

If you have the logic worked out to decide to cancel the printing of the section

use the Cancel property of the section

Private Sub GroupFooter0_Print(Cancel As Integer, PrintCount As Integer)

    If...  your logic
         Cancel = True
    End if


From microsofts help
"The Print event occurs after data in a report section is formatted for printing, but before the section is printed. "
