Sure.

You can suppress the full section through the Section Expert

Right click the section in the left hand margin
Click SECTION EXPERT
Click the FORMULA BUTTON to the right of SUPPRESS
     Enter a formula that is TRUE when you want to suppress
     {SomeField} = 0

Click OK
Click OK

Do you need the records for summaries or totals in the report?
If not why not try to filter them before the report?

If the formula can be expressed as a VIEW, then the answer is probably "Yes." If it can't be, then can you give a little more detail on just what you need to accomplish?

Each record displayed also shows a formula value of True or False. Need to only display those records with a value of True. Thanks.
