    Conscious mismatch (2000 SP3)

    I think I am trying to achieve the impossible and can find a work around but:
    I have a price file with prices denominated in (naturally enough) currency. In some cases, prices are not yet available and these appear as a zero in the price field. I would like to have a report of these prices show dollars in all cases except where the value is zero (which designates that no price has been determined yet) have this show as "POA" ie Price on Application instead of zero. I realize Access (quite rightly) wont let me put words in a currency field and I am looking for a report contents only but wondered if anyone had every found a solution to this sort of issue

    This can be handled quite easily in the format property. The format property allows you to have different formats for a positive number, negative number, zero value, or a null value! Look it up in Help for more explanation and examples.
