Textbox positioning SSRS 2005

I have a report that contains a list report item and within it, I have fields (represented by textboxes) from a dataset that have been laid out as requested by the user. This includes having some fields as a stacked column with labels next to each field. Sometimes when there are some blank fields, when previewing the report, the textboxes below the missing textbox shift up and this causes the textboxes to be out of sync with the labels. This is also the case when I have texboxes in a row and have some missing data, the proceeding fields all move along to fill the empty gap leading to an out of sync issue with the titles.

How can I force the textboxes to remain in the same position as in the design view even when some of the fields contain no data?

Thanks

Rob

You can't.

It is a known problem when exporting out to html to have these issues.

you can try some workarounds such as put the data in rectangles or grids.

I assume when you print the page out it all looks nice. If not then let us know.

Using rectangles kind of worked but it looks fine when you preview in BIDS but looks horrible when viewed on the web or exported to Excel but looks fine in pdf. The user wants to view it on the web. Do you know if there is anything that might make it display properly on the web as it looks in preview?
