Access XP Report - programmatically remove field from inside address

The inside address in this report has a textbox control called ParentOrganizationName and a textbox control ApplicantName. The data in these two controls may be the same or different.

When the data in the two fields is the same, I need to display only the ParentOrganizationName, collapse (?) the ApplicantName control so that it disappears for that report, and move the controls in the inside address together to leave no gaps in the inside address.

Thank you,
Ron

How are you displaying these now ?  Two separate fields?

You could combine them in the query that is the RecordSource for your report, something like:

FieldName: [ParentOrganizationName] & IIF([ParentOrganizationName] = [ApplicantName], "", " (" & [ApplicantName] & ")")

Then you would only need one field, and it would contain both values if these fields were different.

try this

Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
me.ApplicantName.visible= me.ParentOrganizationName<> me.ApplicantName
End Sub

Hi fyed,

You helped me turn the corner on this one. I'd tried working in the query, but keeping the fields separate, then attempting to format in the report...but no luck.

So I tested what you sent me, and it worked! However, I wanted the two names in separate lines if the organization and applicant were different names.

This is how I changed it:

OrganizationOrApplicant: [ParentOrganizationName] & IIf([ParentOrganizationName]=[ApplicantName],"",Chr(13) & Chr(10) & [ApplicantName])

Thank you so much. And thanks to Capricorn1 for your submission.

Regards,
Ron
