I have the message no data for report in the ON NO DATA event, but the report still opens.  How can I prevent the report opening when there is no data?

You need to set the Cancel parameter to TRUE:
Private Sub Report_NoData(Cancel As Integer)
    ' display your custom message box here
    Cancel = True
End Sub

Open in new window

You will also need to handle the error message your main application will get when the report fails to open.

I cannot remember what the error number is, but I just use a Resume Next after testing for that error.

If you open the report via VBA you need to handle this error:
On Error Resume Next
DoCmd.OpenReport "SomeReport", acViewPreview
If Err = 2501 Then Err.Clear

Open in new window
