I have report that I am changing various field and formats based on opening arguments and data criteria.

I would like to a hide a line on the report "RxLine" under conditions.  I am to hide it by setting is border color to white.  I have used this technique in the past.  The report is called from a form.

I am trying to get the following to execute but it is not.  I have tried it under page activate as well.  

Private Sub Report_Activate()
   
    If [JobType] <> "Rx" Or [OpenArgs] = "PT" Then
        Me.RxLine.BorderColor = 16777215 'White
    Else
        Me.RxLine.BorderColor = 0 'Black
    End If
   
End Sub


How can I execute this?

Thank you.

You are using the wrong event.  You need to use the Format event of the section that contains the RxLine control.
