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
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
