    Unanswered: Trim/Can Shrink - works for labels, not for subreports??

    I've seen a few threads about similiar problems, but still can't sort this, so apologies if this has been covered before.

    I'm trying to prevent blank lines from appearing in addresses in a subreport contained within a bigger report. Where no data is contained in one address field, the fields below it should move up, thereby compacting the entire address etc.
    I'm using Trim, and "Can Shrink" for each address field, and there are no controls elsewhere on the same horizontal line as those I'm trying to shrink, but it's not working.

    This IS working perfectly for address labels I have elsewhere in the database (created with the Wizard) - I can't see any differences between the properties for the fields in the labels, and those in the report.
    Why would it work for fields in labels, and not in reports?

    Driving me mad - any help appreciated!

    Is the detail section or whatever section you have these in, on the subreport also set to "can shrink"?
