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.
