In Access control whether image displays

Have an Access Report where the record source is a table (Tbl_xyz) having 2 text fields.

Tbl_xyz records are:

ID    Field 1     Field 2
1     Blue         (Null)
2     Green      c:\green.jpg
3     Brown     (Null)

Would like report to list all records in Detail section, but for record #2 display the image located in Field 2 and then proceed to contents of record #3. So, I inserted an Image Control in the detail section and made the control source Field 2.

By inserting an image control in the detail section, the image frame creates additional space in those lines where there is no image. Is there a way to conditionally make that image frame visible? In other words, records #1 and #3 don't have images.  I don't want the space created by the image frame to be visible. Thanks!

Try this code in the Format section of the detail section:

If Len(Me.Field2.Value) > 0 Then
  Me.Detail.Height = 1000
  Me.Image1.Height = 500
Else
  Me.Detail.Height = 500
  Me.Image1.Height = 250
End If

Just change Image1 to the name of the image control in your report and the height values to what you need.

P.S.
Thanks for the previous points!

Points were well deserved, and you're welcome.
Is your suggestion to use code in the image property, or On Current event of Report, or On Print event of Detail section?

In design view, right-click the detail section of your report and select properties. Under the event tab, select On Format and paste the code there.
