Ok, here we go. I have a table that displays dynamic data. I chose to use the " Show Region if Recodset Not Empty" behavior. The problem that I have is that it is finding values for an empty recordet and thus not finding the table when it needs to. I have traced the problem down to the fact that the database table is not exactly empty, it is blank but as I understand, being blank IS a value, so its seeing the blank values and not hiding the table. One solution I found was to do an "and columname IS NOT NULL in the where statement, but that would requie me to change all the blanks back to <NULL> values and even then, the next I update that column, the <NULL> will be overwritten with blanks again. Any one have any ideas?
