Cover an existing field


Hi Guys,


In another database program I used to be able to use the font Wingdings, using lower case n in white as a calculation to cover fields that were not used.

i.e. If(IsEmpty(myfield;"nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn";"") which would return a filled white field the length of the quantity of n's typed in (and height governed by text size) if the nyfield was empty or nothing if it was not empty which would show the text underneath.


My problem is that I can use the wingding font in a text box, but I cannot get it to work in a calculation field.


Any thoughts or workarounds?
