why the need to delete the textbox?, if you don't want to see the field as part of the report, size the textbox to a minimum.
run the report..

could it be that the textbox is referenced in any calculation?

Also it is not clear what your screenshot is supposed to be telling us?
(why the overlapping controls?)

FWIW, anytime I make design changes to an object, I run the compact/repair utility.

the text box is not referneced in any calculation, its the text of the bound field, and you may not always need the text and in this case i do not need them, or i may want to move it , and this has never happened before, normally works fine except for this time.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

i have never needed to run the compile any time i have made a change, never needed this before.
the overlaping control is one that i droped on then run it and it displays, then you delete the text associated to the text object and it freezzes never seen this before

<i have never needed to run the compile any time i have made a change, never needed this before.>
That could be part of the problem.
You should always compile your code after editing sessions.
In addition to cleaning up the modules for faster execution, it will identify some common coding syntax errors.
See # 5 and #6 here:

Not saying that this will fix your issue here, only that you should try all the basic troubleshooting techniques, just to be sure...

the system probably has some curruption in it, as it is an unstable network and have had to change machines quite oftern under extreme power off situations, so the link page above has been very useful so thanks for that
