    Hello! I have an issue. I have a main report with 5 subreports. Subreport 4 is an image and does not need a page number or a footer. I have removed the page footer for this subreport but I can’t do the same for the page number. Can you please help?

      You have removed the page footer in the sub-report. But, the parent report has the footer and it shows the page number. We need to hide the footer using some code.

      You should have a text box in the parent report footer and write an expression to print the page number as follows.

      =IIF(Globals!PageNumber = 4, “”, cStr(Globals!PageNumber))

      I hope this will help you.
