"Can Shrink" isnt shrinking on report

P: n/a
Hi:

I have a report that contains a remarks field which is a "memo" format field. I have that
field on a single line in the report, and have it given a property of "Can Shrink", in the
hope that he line will vanish when there is no data entered in the memo field. Its not
shrinking! There is nothing else on the line, and no field name or anything else. I have
tried shrinking it to a single small line and saying "Can Grow", but its growing anyway
even when empty. I know it sounds like there is something (spaces?) in the field, but all
other indications are that it is really empty (null).

Any suggestions?

Regards

The section the control is on also needs to have CanShrink.
Also, are you sure there isn't even a label on that same line? Or a
line control?

Thanks Tom:

I didnt realize that the section ALSO had to be able to shrink, but it makes sense now.
