How can I determine if a linked record exists?

I need to populate a formula field. If the record exists on the primary table, I will use that value, if not, I will use a secondary table value.

In the past, I've been able to test the record key for nulls, and this seems to work. In this instance, I need to change the Report Option "Convert Database NULL Values to Default", so I'm looking for an alternate method to test for a record's existance.

Hey Catherine,

Just check for the default value. eg., if it's numberic then

...if IsNull(table.field) then "" (...I like to check for nulls anyway 'cause db's change sometimes...)

Else if IsNumberic(table.field) and

table.field > 0 then DoThis Else DoThat
