I am having a lot of trouble getting a sub-report to shrink on a report if there is no data in the sub-report.  Therefore, the sub-report takes up a lot of room on the report leaving big gaps.  I have the text boxes set to Can Shrink = Yes.  I have made sure nothing overlaps.  I've made sure all objects are snapped to the grid.  On and on and on.

So now my question is...  Is there a way to make the height of the detail section be 0 if there is no data in the textbox and then bring it back to .1667 when the report is closed?
