Half of report empty

When I generate a report, half of it has a lot of empty space even if I've set the property of the report "To shrink" to yes.
Why is this happening?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The shrink/grow setting does not shrink/grow horizontally.  It only works vertically.  You need to adjust the width settings yourself so that the report is centered on the page if you want it to be more aesthetically pleasing.

You'd have to adjust the width of the line to span only the expected width of your data.  Since the alternating colors are actually the background for the report's detail section, rather than actual controls, you would have to set the page margins (through Print Preview) to make the 'striped' area narrower, while keeping it centered.
