Hi,
   I have a report, which has address fields, placed below one another.  
   Can i relatively position these address these cell fields so that if the top one has no address, then that cell will show "no addess found" and the below address will move up, to avoid the white space?

 Basically, the underlying issue is with the white space on a report.
My report is like a "Form".
If there is no data in some of the fields, then the below cells should be moved up and the the white space should be avoided. Is this possible?

Please advise.

Crystal doesn't work that way.

However there are ways to get what you want.

Are these fields in a single record or does someone with 2 addresses have 2 records?

If this is a multifield address then
One way to handle this is through a formula

Local StringVar strAddress;
strAddress := ""

If Not IsNull({Addresfield1}) then
     strAddress := {Addresfield1};

If Not  IsNull({Addresfield2}) then
   If  strAddress = "" then
        strAddress := {Addresfield2}
Else
     strAddress := strAddress  & chr(13) & {Addresfield1};

etc for each field in the address.

Drop this on the report making it 1 "row" tall.  
You can format it to grow so it can handle the extra lines.
