normally, a subreport will not show if there is no data to show

you can also check the subreport.hasdata  (true/False) property  on the No Data Event of your Main report

If [SubReportName1].HasData = 0 then
   ' what you need to do
end if

Private Sub Report_Current()
If [rptDBAQuestionsSub].HasData = 0 Then
    Me.lblOutQuestion.Visible = False
    Me.lblSuggestion.Visible = False
End If
End Sub


this is not working. where is the best place to place the code?

ok I tried it on the no Data event still not return the results I am expecting.

Private Sub Report_NoData(Cancel As Integer)

If [rptDBAQuestionsSub].HasData = 0 Then
    Me.rptDBAQuestionsSub.Visible = False
    Me.lblOutQuestion.Visible = False
    Me.lblResponder.Visible = False
    Me.lblSuggestion.Visible = False
Else
    Me.rptDBAQuestionsSub.Visible = True
    Me.lblOutQuestion.Visible = True
    Me.lblResponder.Visible = True
    Me.lblSuggestion.Visible = True

End If
End Sub

Hi Karen

I think you need to use the Format event of the (Detail?) section containing the subreport, nor the Current event.

Why don't you include the column header labels in the report header of the subreport?  That way, if there is no data and the subreport does not print, then you will not see the labels either.

Graham,

Thanks for the suggestion, however, having issue with the criteria for the Detail_Format

Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
If [rptDBAQuestionsSub].HasData = 0 Then
    Me.rptDBAQuestionsSub.Visible = False
    Me.rptDBAQuestionsSub.CanShrink = True
'    Me.lblOutQuestion.Visible = False
'    Me.lblResponder.Visible = False
'    Me.lblSuggestion.Visible = False
'    Me.lblDateCreated.Visible = False
Else
    Me.rptDBAQuestionsSub.CanShrink = False
    Me.rptDBAQuestionsSub.Visible = True
'    Me.lblOutQuestion.Visible = True
'    Me.lblResponder.Visible = True
'    Me.lblSuggestion.Visible = True
'    Me.lblDateCreated.Visible = True
End If

If [rptUseCaseSub].HasData = 0 Then
    Me.rptUseCaseSub.CanShrink = False
Else
    Me.rptUseCaseSub.CanShrink = True
End If

End Sub

You could perhaps make the entire subreport control invisible if certain criteria are met.  But we really need to examine the report in a database to see what is going on.

I got it to work, thanks for the input

    If Reports![rptRequirementMain]![rptUseCaseSub].Report.HasData = 0 Then
        Reports![rptRequirementMain]![rptUseCaseSub].Report.Visible = False
    Else
        Reports![rptRequirementMain]![rptUseCaseSub].Report.Visible = True
    End If

    If Me.Duplicate_Req = True Or Me.Active = False Then
        Me.lblOpsolete.Visible = True
