We have been having a lot of trouble implementing a CanShrink function into an Access database of names and addresses. Despite repeated attempts we are getting blank lines showing up in the reports where the information is missing, even though we have tried to stop the problem with a limiting IFNULL and a CanShrink function.
We would like to have a clean Report come out of the database which has no blanks in the displayed info. (except of course for the spacing between each record).
Hopefully in the file you will see where these blank lines are showing up - we just want them gone so that the information per person is tightened up.
Is there a distinction between doing something like this in Access 2003 vs. 2010? I am hoping not since the database needs to be used in both versions.
I am totally lost in Access and even more-so with these functions. Anyone out there able to solve this one?
I am attaching the Access database file and a sample of the excel mailing list which contains the info (blank fields and all) which it is trying to organize. The excel file is called "Annuaire 50 NAME TEST OF BLANKS", which I think is Sheet 1 in the database, and the access file is just db1.
Feel free to insert the proper function/macro/if-statemen
lled in order to solve this one. Honestly, I can't even locate where it is put in anymore or where to find it in Access.
I shall await patiently. Annuaire-50-NAME-TEST-OF-BLANKS.xls db1.mdb
