One option:
Make sure your data provider always returns at least one result record. You could create a UNION query to fetch at least one record. You will have to filter out this “dummy” record within your report though.

Also, take a look at this thread: No data to fetch
which I found doing a simple SEARCH on Bob :mrgreen:

Or look at the FAQ: Reporter section, where Cindy posted the possible answers (again I found this entry via Search is Your Friend at BOB).

Yes, some of the condition are not able to match the data from different query. But i don’t want to “No data been fetch” message prompt out when i refresh the data.

i get to find one command from the search as been provided, but i don’t know where i need to place this command if i don’t want the message appear in document when user refresh the data.

sameple command as i get in the search:

dim appint as BOApplication
set appint = Application
appint.Interactive = FALSE

note : where can i place this command? or any other methods if i don’t want the message been prompt?

Thank you

Again it is all here:
Look at the FAQ: Reporter section, where Cindy posted the possible answers and explained how to use a VBA macro…
