I have a field on a report and the control source is:

=[Forms]![frmSelectDateRangeSourceOfSalesRpt]![txtMemberName]

But if the field on the form is blank I want the field to print "All Members"

Here is the on print code I have but it doesn't work.

    If Me.txtTeamMember = "" Then
        Me.txtTeamMember = "All Members"
    End If

You don't need the VBA.

Just set the control source as follows:


=iif ( Trim("" & [Forms]![frmSelectDateRangeSourceOfSalesRpt]![txtMemberName]) = "", "ALL MEMBERS",  [Forms]![frmSelectDateRangeSourceOfSalesRpt]![txtMemberName])

Open in new window

"" is a ZLS (zero length string) and is different from Null.  The following code simplifies the test for both values.  It concatenates a ZLS with the field and then tests to see if it is still equal to a ZLS.  This takes advantage of the concatenation properties of & when dealing with a null value because when you concatenate a ZLS with Null, you end up with a ZLS.

    If Me.txtTeamMember & "" = "" Then
        Me.txtTeamMember = "All Members"
    End If
