I would like to hide the detail section of the report. Is there any VBA that I can use? I want to keep the header and totals on the report footer. thanks

I guess you could set the detail height to 0 (and any controls also), but... why not run a query that gets you the same values as the footer would display, and use those in the detail instead?

Look for the report On Format event and try
Me.Detail.Visible=False

Besides just setting the property to false at design time, you can set the detail's visible property on the fly too...I do this often when I want to give a user a choice between a summary and detail report (like a G/L Trial Balance).
