Report missing information

Report missing information

I need to make a report that will show me all the the data not filled in in a particular record. I have 91 fields that I need to query and only those that are empty I need to indicate on the report in some way. By placing all the text boxes in the report makes it too long so I want to code some vb to do the checks and then only display those fields which are empty. Because the text box is empty or null I have to make the label display a value. Here is an example of what I have done, but it has one problem, the label keeps being overwritten.
If IsNull(Me![Title]) Then
CaptionText = "Title"
MissingDataLabel.Caption = CaptionText
End If
If IsNull(Me![Birthdate]) Then
CaptionText = "BirthDate"
MissingDataLabel.Caption = CaptionText
End If

RE: Report missing information

Hi Umbane,

I'd consider using a variable string, and appending the name of the field which is empty to the end of each field found that is empty, ie:

Dim lblMissing as text

If IsNull(Me![Title]) Then
lblMissing = "Title" & ", "
End If

If IsNull(Me![Birthdate]) Then
lblMissing = lblMissing & "BirthDate" & ", "
End If

MissingDataLabel.Caption = left(lblMissing,len(lblMissing)-2)

end sub

It seems a bit cludgy to me, but looks like it would work.
