I have a report template which has up to 5 pages per reservation (allows for up to 5 guests to register under one reservation). Now if I only have one or two guests in a singe reservation I need to suppress or delete the extra pages. Is there any easy way to delete the current page of a report using vba access? Thanks for any help. Rg Michael

sounds like you have fields for each set of guests instead of making a related table.  If you do the latter, the report can print just what is there.

I agree a 100% but it is too cumbersome to change at this point in time.... Thanks Michael

it is actually a lot less cumbersome to change it than it is to be figuring out how to get around it ;) ~

all you need to do is make the table, put a foreign key in to the reservation (use AutoNumber in reservations and Long integer with no default value in related table) then make a form to be used as a subform on the reservation form (or whatever you call it), put ReservationID on it (can be hidden -- Visible=No), set LinkMasterFields and LinkChildFields for the subform (which you can drag from the navigation pane to the main form in design view) to be ReservationID , and let Access do its magic! Reporting is just as easy

In short, no.   But you can set the section (assuming detail), CanShrink property to yes, and in the OnFormat event for the section, check each control:

 If NZ(Me.<somecontrol>,"") = ""  Then
     Me.<somecontrol>.Visible = False
 Else
     Me.<somecontrol>.Visible = True
 End if

 and repeat that for each control.   Assuming you have no grid lines or other controls, that should get rid of the blank pages.

Jim.
