I have a form opening in datasheet view.  And there is a record at the bottom of the other records that isn't really there yet.  But in one of the fields of that record I see #Type! and want to hide it.  The field's control source is:

=[txtTotalWeight]/[txtConvertedSchedHrs]

I tried this but it doesn't work:

=IIf(IsNull([txtSchedLBHR]),"",[txtTotalWeight]/[txtConvertedSchedHrs])

also tried:

=IIf([txtSchedLBHR]= "","",[txtTotalWeight]/[txtConvertedSchedHrs])

with no luck.

Still didn't work.

I'm going to strip most everything out of a copy of the d/b and attach it.

Attached.  A stripped down copy of the database.  

Open frmLoadingSchedule.

Need to hide the #Type! values in the record that isn't really there yet (last 3 columns).
