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?
