    Unanswered: Shuffling fields up.

    I have a report which contains 6 fields which represnt a postal address. Some of the fields are blank so when I print out my report I see gaps in the address.

    Is there a way to shuffle the fields up if they are blank?

    Here's a neat trick...

    create a single textbox on a report with the grow attribute set.

    add the expression (using your own field names):

    Code:
    =[Addr1] & Chr$(13)+Chr$(10)+[Addr2] & Chr$(13)+Chr$(10)+[ADDR3] & Chr$(13)+Chr$(10)+[TOWN]
    you can add as many fields as you like and the blank ones will be ignored and leave no blank line. The trick is the use of & and + as concatenaters.
