Default VB6 Data Report Designer

I'm using the built-in Data Report designer in VB6 for reporting purposes. I have a scenerio where the value of 1 field in a record determines which label on the report is to receive the value of another field on the record. Therefore, these particular labels cannot be bound to the database. Is there a way in the Data Report Designer to "look" at each record as it comes in and have the report put the right value in the right label or is there some way to combine different commands in the Data Environment to make this work?

Did you find a solution for this? I would like to be able to
change the visible property of a report section based on a control's
value in that section. Do you have a corvette? What year? Thank you.

No I did not so I had to make the field "invisible" by just putting no data in it for those instances where I didn't want it to be seen. For my situation that worked just as good.

I have a red on red 1976 Stingray.

Thanks for the reply. My situation is I need to hide sub totals depending on the value of a detail record. I will keep looking. I have 1972 red on white Chevelle SS. Thanks again.
