Hi Mike,

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.

You could only suppress the output for a complete section of the report.
So the whole data of one row could be suppressed, not a "row of fields"
in the section "Details".

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?

You could try to set the height of the fields to automatic height, but I
don't know if it would set the hight to '0' for the fields. See

I have tried the documentation for ReportBuilder for the German
Base-Handbuch. You could find older translations here:
