Experts, I am trying to hide a subreport if there are no records.   Not sure if this is with Dcount or using a txtCounter. The table is tblRepayments and the parent and sub are linked on tblDraws.ID and tblDraws_Details1.DrawIDRpmt.

thank you.

try setting the Can Shrink property of the subreport control to Yes (True) -- near the bottom of the Format tab of the Property Sheet (Alt-Enter if it is not showing)

this will work in Print Preview but not Report View -- assuming subreport is in the detail section (if not, change accordingly:
Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
'160828 s4p
   With me.controlname_Subreport
      .Visible = .Report.HasData
   End With
End Sub

Report View doesn't run code

you might try setting controls heights on subreport to something very small like 0.1 -- and subreport control very small too -- and CanGrow to Yes. you will still get 1 row but it won't be as tall. Make sure no borders around any controls or subreport control so all that will happen is just a little more space.
