I can do a simple-minded report using report builder, which looks at the

completely suppressing that line of output? I don't want pointless blank
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".
Thanks for the reply.
I'm still 'all at sea', I'm afraid. I can't for the life of me see how
to create a new section, never mind how to make it disappear conditionally.
The German translation you mention seems to be roughly what I've already
seen; I've not found it helpful, I'm afraid.
Judging by the lack of other responses to my query, this must be a
somewhat obscure part of LO. I think perhaps I'd better stick with my
existing perl script I've been using to generate ODF documents from a
spreadsheet -- seems easier to cut perl code than understand Report
Builder. :-( :-(
