I am personalizing our reports to give the current date and welcome the user by name.  I was wondering if there was a way to hide that part when the user prints the report?  I know specify visibility based on RenderFormat.Name if it is Excel or Word but what about printing?  Just curious if it's possible and how to do it since my searching hasn't produced any results yet.

Thank you!

You can still use that info on the SQL query side. But on the report side you would have to just remove those two data items for it not to show on the report.

There is different rendering option using that you can apply formula on textbox.

You can indeed also use RenderFormat to detect if the report is being printed.  The .Name property will be set to 'IMAGE' in that case.
