I have a report that displays zero if the value is zero.  OK, but now I need to display the zero as N/A instead of zero.  How do I do this?  One text box I have has this code as the control source.

=IIf([AskPrice]>0,[AskPrice],"")

Thanks

Where would this go exactly?  Is it added to the control source?

You can add a new, unbound, Textbox control to your report and enter the expression as the ControlSource.

I think I actually just need to replace the control source that was there.  Thanks
