Datawindows... PB 9

Datawindows... PB 9

Datawindows... PB 9


I have a question regarding datawindows in version PB9.

I am creating a report which will print off employee information.

Example.. I am running a report wide open and it returns 25 employees.

For each employee, I would like to have a section on the report for Employee Notes, but only if notes exist for that employee.

When the report is generated, is there a way I can tell a column, if your value = '' or NUll for this employee, set the visibility to false, otherwise, visibility to true?

Any suggestions.


RE: Datawindows... PB 9

Use an expression on the visible property of the column in the datawindow which makes up the report. Something like:


If(IsNull(mycol),0,mycol = '',0,1)) 


"Nature forges everything on the anvil of time"
