Hi. I've been trying to get my head round report builder (it seems a very steep learning curve, ill-documented), and there's one issue that's eluding me - how to conditionally completely suppress output.

I'm trying to format an address book from material in a database. As usual, there'll be fields for name, 1st and 2nd lines of address, town, email, phone, etc.

I can do a simple-minded report using report builder, which looks at the moment to fulfil the need, except for one problem. When a database field is empty (eg, no email or no 2nd address line), is there any way of completely suppressing that line of output? I don't want pointless blank lines appearing.

It's exactly the issue raised at
but the linked solution on an OO web page doesn't seem relevant to LO -- (I can't find Insert > Section in this context).

I'm hoping I'm just missing something obvious - I'd be grateful for any pointers please. Also, is there a good tutorial around with examples for report builder?
