3.8. Avoid Unwanted Blank Rows on Mailing Labels

3.8.1. Problem

When you print mailing labels, especially when you use a small font size and place the address text boxes close together, you sometimes get unwanted blank rows in the addresses when the labels print. You also can't seem to use lines or graphics on your labels without causing blank rows. How can you get your labels to print correctly—without blank rows—in these situations?

3.8.2. Solution

The CanGrow and CanShrink text box properties for reports allow text boxes to grow or shrink vertically as needed. These properties normally work well, but sometimes overlapping text boxes or graphics can interfere with text boxes' ability to shrink or grow. This solution shows how you can avoid these problems by combining the output of several fields into a single expression and using that expression as the row source of a single text box.
