I would like to activate the visibility of a header depending on the null value of a cell inside it

Hi,

I have GroupHeader2 which has inside it the textbox student.

I would like all of groupheader2 to not show if student is null.

So I selected the 'on format' event for GroupHeader2 and entered the following code:

If student is null
then groupheader2.visible is false
else groupheader2.visible is true
endif

This is not working for me. Could someone shed some light as to why?

Thank you,

Try use the following which assumes there is a text box in the section bound to the field Student:

CODE --> vba

Cancel = IsNull(Me.Student)

cosette00,
Can we assume it worked?

I haven't tested it yet, because the memo field became a huge problem and the headmaster had a panic attack. But the header is minimal at this point. I am sorry I should have clarified.
