On a report in the detail section I have a sub-report.  If there is no data in the sub-report I want to hide the detail section record.

Can this be done?

Add the following to your Detail Format event in the main report:

    If Me.MySubReportName.Report.HasData = False Then Me.Detail.Visible = False

Open in new window


Or this (shorthand):

    Me.Detail.Visible = Me.MySubReportName.Report.HasData

Open in new window
