I've got the following statement, but nothing comes out:

Local stringvar sResult := "";

If Length({TB1.FLD1}) > 0 then
    sResult := {TB1.FLD1} & Chr(13);

If Length({TB1.FLD1}) > 0 then
    sResult := sResult & {TB1.FLD2} & Chr(13);

If Length({TB1.FLD3}) > 0 then
    sResult := sResult & {TB1.FLD3} & Chr(13);

sResult := sResult & {TB1.FLD4} & " " & {TB1.FLD5} & " "& {TB1.FLD6};
sResult

could it be that one of the fields has a null value? if so, have a look at this
http://support.crystaldecisions.com/library/kbase/articles/c2000247.asp

Or try try setting "Convert null values to default" in the report options.

Is the field on the report tall enough to handle the field?

Is CAN GROW set?

Format the field
Check CAN GROW

IsNull works perfect, I won't use Length() in this case any more

For future reference a NULL doesn't have a length so the value is not defined.
