Get Rid Of "No Documents Found" Super Simple

I saw a tip in here for this message. It used a computed subform based on a
lookup ona hidden column in the view. Using R5 it is now very rare that I
don't use views embedded in forms. This is a slighly less elegant way (but
equally effective) of hiding the message "No documents found".
Just embed the view in a Form/Page. Above or below the embedded view create
the text or graphic you wish to substitute for "No documents found". Highlight
the text or graphic. In the HideWhen property box simply state fieldname !="".
Where the fieldname is a field which is used in one of the view's columns. Do
the converse HideWhen (fieldname = "") for the embedded view. This way your
customized message can reside with the embedded view in the form. Easy for
future developers.
