Report section not shrinking

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have a report that prints quotations with images of the stock item
if there is an image. images are externally stored. My problem is that
when there is an image to display and the description text box which
is to the left of the image is more then one line of text(can grow =
true), the report section increases in size and leaves a white space
between the next record below. If there is an image to display with
only one line of description text the report section does not expand.
Images are stored in an image frame and are resized by vba ie
me.imageframe = 10 (no image) or me.imageframe = 2000. all controls
and sections are set to can shrink = true. I have put in large ie 20cm
high text boxes in the section and had the report resize thes to 0.0
to see if this would force the section to resize and avoid the white
space to the next record, the section resizes but still leaves the
white space. There are no hidden controls that are inteferring. The
white space size seems to correspond to the section height of the
report in design view.

Are there any ideas of what I can look at next??
