Blank field in subreport

Background:  I have 5 sub reports in a main report.  Each sub report has 5 groups.  Each group has two fields.  The report is being used to do a Daily Summary and there needs to be 50 lines, each with two fields, one being a time field the other is a memo field.  I have 'grouped' the 'lines' so that when printing, it will not take up space on the report, essentially not printing blank lines where there is no information in the field, if that makes sense.  The groups can shrink & grow.

I am trying to print a report that has 24 lines of 50....line number 21 prints on the second page of the report, but only prints the time, not the memo. I moved the line 21 info to the next line 22, but it leaves that line 21 blank and I have the same issue on the next line, so it has to be the groups and how they print onto the next page, but I cannot figure it out.  Please help!

Are you able to post the DB with the example for this one?

Try limiting your resource to not included blank lines. (wrap a query around a table/query)

What is the setting for the 'Force new page' property on the group?

thank you for the prompt response.  I did manage to solve the issue.  I had the sub-reports too close together in the report.  I separated them a bit and the report works great!

with the exception of the issue above, the report worked fine on Access 2007.  It did not work the same on Access 2010, so I played with it until it worked.  Once I moved the sub-reports farther apart all was good!
