How to much the content of the sub reports in Ms Access using VBA

Last Modified: 2019-11-21

I want to evaluate the sub reports in my current & prior year income statements so that the accounts lines on them can be compared properly line by line in Ms Access VBA:

Condition 1

If the current year sub report ([Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTD]![SumOfTotal]) has some figures but the prior year sub report is empty ([Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTDS2]![SumOfTotal]) then the prior year must return same lines with ZEROS

Condition 2

If the prio year sub report ([Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTDS2]![SumOfTotal]) has some figures but the current year sub report is empty ([Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTD]![SumOfTotal]) then the current year must return same lines with ZEROS

I have tried the code below its not working it keeps on asking for debug.
Private Sub Report_Load()
If IsNull([Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTD]![SumOfTotal]) Then
[Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTDS2]![SumOfTotal] = Null
[Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTDS2]![SumOfTotal] = 0
[Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTDS2]![SumOfTotal] = [Reports]![srptRevenueRevenueOnlyYTDS2]![SumOfTotal]
End If
End Sub
