Removing data lines

I have a crystal report
With some fields that do not contain data
I would like to suppress these and move other data up in it's place
Ie
Address 1
Address 2
Town

so I may not have any data for address2 so rather than a gap, can I then see, with no gap
Address1
Town

FWIW, if you put the fields in separate sections (with nothing else in the section), then you should be able to just use the "Suppress blank section" option in the Section Expert to suppress those sections, rather than creating a suppression formula.  Either one works.  "Suppress blank section" is just a bit easier.

Hi James
That is what I am doing
Thanks

Well, if there is nothing else in that section, then what James suggested would definitely work.
But, in case, you want to display a label for each of those fields, then the section won't be blank.
That's why I suggested to use section expert level suppression.
