In the format event of the section containing the control use VBA like the
following

IF Me.[Total In Stock]- Me.[reorderlevel]=0 then
Me.ShowTotalControl.Visible = True
ELSE
Me.ShowTotalControl.Visible = False
END IF


Or you could try conditional formatting and setting the font color to match
the paper color. White on White is pretty well invisible.
