Supress a blank Section
Posted on 2006-11-27
I have a problem and hope you can help.
My report has a "Group Footer" section which contains only one text field.
I want that this section (GF) suppressed when the field is blank or Null.
I notice if I check the supress under that field's format editor, commom, object format, the whole report is blank.
And if I check the Suppress Blank Section under Section Expert of the GF, here comes the interesting, or confusing part,
after I saved it, it worked at first run, i.e. the section is suppressed and report shows everything, then the next run and there after, all I got is blank report. No matter how I flip back and forth with these two check boxes, the report remains blank, unless I remove the field from the report.
I am using vs2003 embedded CR 8.5.
How can I suppress the GF without blank out the report?
I appreciate your help in advance!
