Hmm...  rather than deal with this in the .rdl, any chance you can verify that whatever SQL in your main data set is returning empty rows, and deal with it there?

Jim is right, but you can hide the row if the it is empty.

=IIF(trim(Fields!cla_address_line_2.Value)= "", True, False)
Place this in the hide Windows properpties of that textbox in the report.
this will work only if address2 is only a single line.

If not then you will need to use this in the address1 textbox....

=IIF(trim(Fields!cla_address_line_2.Value) = "", trim(Fields!cla_address_line_1.Value) , trim(Fields!cla_address_line_1.Value) & vbCRLF & trim(Fields!cla_address_line_2.Value))
