Is there any way to set the top margin of a report field, as one can with CSS on an html page? I'd like to be able to adjust this for the reports that I output as PDFs.

    No way that I am aware of.

    Others have asked a similar question as in can you align the data on the bottom of the field and the answer there was no.

    I believe is CR 9 and greater there is a way to incorporate a CSS Class.  I personally have never used it, but it might be worth checking out.  You can find it by right click on the field(s) and going to Format Field.  Then on the Common tab you should see a text box that will allow you to point to where your CSS is located.  Again, I have not sure if this will work like it does in the web world. Outside of that, I would have to agree thus far there is no way to make it appear on the top.
