The Print Condition column is the first column in the Display view of the Format Editor window. It contains a printer icon. You can use this column to specify the conditions in which a row is to be included in a report. For example, you might only want to display a row if it contains a value other than zero. Setting a row to never be included in a report means you will not be able to use that result in another row. However, if the cell is included in a named range, the named range can be referenced in another row, even if the print condition is false.
To use the Print Condition column:
To always include a row, just leave the Print Condition column blank for that row.
If a row's inclusion is conditional, enter the condition in the Print Condition column for that row.
If you want a row to be excluded in all conditions, type =FALSE in the Print Condition column for that row. You would use this when you want a row to contain notes for the designer rather than content that is part of the Format.
Any text you type in this column does not display in your reports. A print condition on a row that is set to repeat is applied to each of the rows returned.
To add a print condition to a row from within Report Designer (on the Formats tab):
Click on the cell in the Print Condition row.
Simply start typing your print condition.
Click the Preview icon to preview the report.
