i attch dbe.
go to chaps data query report
This report shows fields that have some entries and fires where there are no entries.
Is it posssible to produce a report based on a query like this:
If there are no entries in that field DO NOT include that field in the report.

Also could then any empty space be removed in the report to save space/paper (which is the real object)

see if this helps

set the can grow and can shrink property of the textboxes
add code in the detail format event to hide textboxes that don't have values

you may try using sub reports.

without seeing your computer, i can't really tell.
check virus protection softwares (norton ???)  that you have in your pc and compare it with the pc where you were able to run the report successfully.
