MS Access Report error

HI

I have an Access Report that contains a sub report.  The main form has control that references a total box on the sub report.  This all works fine until the sub report contains no data and then the control that references it on the main form display #error.

How can I get around this?

Many thanks

Paste this function into a standard module:

Function AvoidError(n As Variant, varReplaceWith As Variant)

10      On Error GoTo AvoidError_Error

20      AvoidError = Nz(n, varReplaceWith)

AvoidError_Exit:
30      Exit Function

AvoidError_Error:
40      AvoidError = varReplaceWith
50      Resume AvoidError_Exit

End Function


 and then change the reference in your report to:

=AvoidError(<subreport reference here>, "N/A")

Jim.
