Have a Access Report where the record source is a table (Tbl_xyz) having 2 text fields.

Tbl_xyz records are:

ID    Field 1     Field 2
1     Blue         (Null)
2     Green       c:\green.jpg
3     Brown      (Null)

Would like report to list all records in Detail section, but for record #2 display the image located in Field 2 and then proceed to contents of record #3.

You can insert a picture control in the detail section and then make the control source Field 2.

By inserting a image control in the detail section, the image frame creates additional space in those lines where there is no image. Is there someway to conditionally make that image frame visible? In other words, records #1 and #3 don't have images.  I don't want the space created by the image frame to be visible. Thanks!

Try this code in the Format section of the detail section:

If Len(Me.Field2.Value) > 0 Then
  Me.Detail.Height = 1000
  Me.Image1.Height = 500
Else
  Me.Detail.Height = 500
  Me.Image1.Height = 250
End If

Just change Image1 to the name of the image control in your report and the height values to what you need.
