Crystal Reports Section Expert suppress blank section query

RichardWalsh asked
Last Modified: 2011-10-03
I am creating a report which has a section based on a delivery address. If all the lines of that delivery address are blank I wish to suppress that particular swection of the Crystal Report. I have done this and it works OK. However I really wish also to have a text field in that section showing "Delivery Address".
But of course if I do that the section is no longer blank and prints. So how do I suppress a section only based on the database fields it contains and not descriptive text?
