How can I suppress a text field if the Admitted date (blue) falls within the dynamic range of the date shown within the group (orange)? The Admitted Date doesnt have to be an actual value from the group date column, but if the date can be found within the dynamic range, I'd like the text field (Green) to be suppressed.

Not sure you can do it but try this in the suppression formula


{YourDateField} >= Minimum({DateRangeField})
AND
{YourDateField} <= Maximum({DateFieldRange})

I had tried that but there is nothing limiting the formula to the groups dates.

Sorry.

{YourDateField} >= Minimum({DateRangeField},{Groupfield})
AND
{YourDateField} <= Maximum({DateFieldRange}, {Groupfield})

I am assuming that the dates in the dynamic range (orange) are in the details and you are grouping on the user:

In the green field's Suppress conditional formula:

AdmittedDateField in minimum (OrangeDateField, UserField) to maximum (OrangeDateField, UserField)

I've been helped by mlmcc for at least 7 years under different user accounts. I'm testing this out now. Thanks.

I need to modify my original request a bit i think. I need to show the text field if the Admitted date falls within 30 days of the Treatment Plan Date within the details section. Any more ideas?

Try
Not {AdmittedDateFIeld} in Last30Days


If those are 2 dates in the record
Suppress with
DateDiff('d', {TreatmentPlanDate}, {AdmittedDateField}) > 30
