I have a report with 7 sub reports. My main report contains  calculated controls that uses totals from fields in the different sub reports. The controls calculate when in layout view, but in print preview  I receive the "#Type!" error. I know it's because some sub reports don't have data but I still need it to calculate and show on my report when printed.

 How do I get it to display on my report when printed?

This is my expression I use in expression builder as my control source for the text box:
=[subrptTIPS].[Report]![YTD TIP Score]*15
