Conditional Formatting of Access 2007 Report Header

Posted on 2014-01-29

I am trying to apply a OnFormat condition to a low level report header.  Basically, if the header field does not have a value, I want to suppress display of all the header fields.  The Onload code is:
Private Sub GroupHeader4_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
If (Len(Nz(Me.CAUS_ID, "")) > 0) Then Me.GroupHeader4.Visible = False
   ' If IsNull(Me.CAUS_ID) Then Me.GroupHeader4.Visible = False
  ' If IsEmpty(Me.CAUS_ID) Then Me.GroupHeader4.Visible = False
End Sub
The GroupHeader4 and fields still display.  Note from the commented code that I have tried several ways to detect a null field value, but to no avail.

This is a very large report and there are only about 10% of the records with a CAUS_ID that would have additional data.  Attached is a sample of what the report looks like.

Appreciate any help!

Hello Al

If you want to suppress the printing of the entire header section, then set the Cancel argument to True:

If IsNull(Me.CAUS_ID) Then Cancel = True

If it is possible that Me.CAUS_ID contains a zero-length string (ZLS) rather than a Null, then use this:

If Len( Me.CAUS_ID & "" ) = 0 Then Cancel = True

I used the second formula and that worked.  Thanks much!
