Suppress a text field only when a particular database field is empty

Hi there,

I am wondering how I can suppress a text box when a particular field DOES contain data.

Should I even use a suppress formula, or should I make the text box a formula field so that it can contain an "If" statement?

In trying to use a suppress formula, I am basically trying to say Suppress this field if...

[there is something] in ({the particular field})

...but I just can't work out what the terms are to use. There doesn't seem to be anything like "NotNull" or "not empty".

And I am guessing a non-suppress formula would be more like If ({the particular field}) [is empty] then [print it]

Can anyone assist?

many thanks

-Karen B

    not isnull()
