    Filling in space gaps left by surpressed subreports with null values

    I have set most of the subreports on a main report to be suppressed if there is no data to be displayed in them. However, when the report is printed out the space where the subreport would be is just a blank space. I was wondering if it is possible to move everything below the suppressed subreport up to fill in the blank space. This would be a tremendous help in not only making the report easier to read, but also save on the amount of paper needed to print the reports.

    I haven't found anything thus far in this forum or a couple others when I was searching for this specific topic.

    Thanks ahead of time for the help

    I think you can do this by making the sub report control very small but set its Can Grow property to true
