Unanswered: Only show report labels if field in separate form is null?
I want to run a report that is based on a query that is based on a form where the user enters the parameters. Basically, I want to search for people who graduated in a specific year or in a year range. You either enter a beginning year and end year in the form or a single year in another field on the form. Once you click search, the results appear in a subform on the same search form. I also want to add a print report button to the form that automatically prints a report. I have a label on the report that says from (year) to (year) where it pulls the years from the form. However, I want these text boxes to disappear if null and then show another text box (which would be the single year text box). How should I do this in access?

You could try conditional formatting to reformat the controls so that they're only visible if they're not null.
Alternatively, use the record's Current event to control their visibility.10% of magic is knowing something that no-one else does. The rest is misdirection.
