Skipping Blank Fields

    I am trying to produce a report where I skip fields that are blank. I
    changed the property for each field to Can Shrink. However, the report still
    produces blank lines for null fields.

    Afer that didn't work, I tried creating a query that would only accept Is
    Not Null fields. I set that criteria for every field where data may or may
    not exist for a given record. However, it took that as "all or none" and
    only produced records where each and every such field is populated. I want a
    query that produces a result for every record that has at least one populated
    field (each record does).

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    It may be that there are non-shrinking controls alongside the ones you want
    to shrink. These could be labels or graphical elements such as lines. If
    this is the case then the bound controls won't shrink if Null. Also make
    sure that the controls are vertically contiguous with no 'white space'
    between them as only the space occupied by the control itself shrinks.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
