turn on Lable visible property for criteria

Experts, I have a form with a subform linked by LetterOfCreditID;ProjectID.
I have a lblExpired that I want to appear for when me.expiredYN = Yes but the lbl is only suppose to turn on for that particular record and not the others.   For example, there are 5 records on the subform and 2 of them are [ExpiredYN] = Yes then turn on the lblExpired for only those two records.  
With the code I have now, the lblExpired stays on for all the records when  [expiredYN] = Yes
How can I make the lblExpired turn on for when [ExpiredYN] = Yes but for only those records?  (ExpiredYN  is a true YN field. with name cboExpired)  lblExpired has its visible property = False

Private Sub Form_Current()

   If Me.ExpiredYN = 1 Then
            Me.lblExpired.Visible = True
    End If

thank you

Ok, so what is happening is that on your form, when you use VBA to set the visibility property , Me.Control.Visible = True, it will replicate the same property for each record displayed.

I only use access 2003, so if this differs in other versions, anyone feel free to correct me.

Your right, you can't set the visibility property of a control with the standard conditional formatting (right click, conditional formatting), you may be able to do it using VBA, however, back to the original problem that it will display the same on each record.

There is also no conditional formatting for labels, so, work around.

Change the label to a text box.
Set the Enabled property to no, Locked property to yes, back style to transparent, Default value to "Insert Your Text Here"
Right click the control in design view, select conditional formatting.

Set Condition one to Expression is
Set the expression to ([MyCheckBoxName] = 0)
Set the text colour to match the detail colour of your form
make sure the enabled button is off (little button at the right hand side)

That should give you the effect you are looking for  :)

Hi there :)

Couple of questions.  

Is the subform a continuos form? (I'm guessing that is is, just want to be sure)
Is the label bound or unbound?

What version of MS Access are you using?

Versions 2007 and 2010 have conditional formatting for some controls (text boxes and combo boxes for instance) that you may find useful.

Conditional formatting for a form in design mode is found 'Form Design Tools' > 'Format'

Dockieboy:  yes, it is continous.  the lable is unbound.

JAMCO:  not certain if you can turn on the visible property through conditional formatting.

Oh yes... The text box trick.  I remember this now. I think i should be fine with your idea now.

Thank you
