Instead of using tabs, go back to using conditional formatting.
Instead of trying to make fields invisible by changing their font color, use the More formatting option and set them to a font size 100 pts or larger to make them invisible. This leaves them trans parent so that you can layer different conditionally formatted fields on top of each other.
Thanks, it seems like that will work. Sorry it took so long to respond.
Actually, I thought it was working but i think that the font size solution is causing an issue. The records are not a fixed size, they are very large, to allow for about three pages of information per record, and everything inside is set to slide up and resize enclosing part. Unfortunately, it appears that making the headers in the leading subsummary giant is causing the records to not resize. I'm kind of exhausted and a bit sick, so I'm not thinking very straight. If I'm imssing something obvious then I apologize. Hopefully when I come in tomorrow it will be obvious, but in case this is actually an issue, is there ay solution?
