I have a report that has a subreport in the details section of the main report.  If the value of a certain field in the detail section of the main report is "0" then I want the subreport so shrink to 0" vertically in the detail section of the main report.

I have everything set to can shrink = yes in the detail section of the main report and also in the detail section of the subreport.  (The only section of the subreport with anything in it is the detail section).

Here's my onprint code for the detail section of the main report which isn't doing anything... (I also tried this in the onformat event)

Private Sub Detail_Print(Cancel As Integer, PrintCount As Integer)

    If Me.txtSumOfScrap.Value = 0 Then
        Me.rptInternalScrapReportDefectCauses.Visible = False
        Else
        Me.rptInternalScrapReportDefectCauses.Visible = True
    End If

End Sub

Setting the Visible property won't allow Access to reclaim that space, but you might be able to set the .Height of the Subreport CONTROL to 0. I've not used that technique - it's better to fix your record pulls to ONLY pull valid data - but it may work.
