How can I hide the white spaces when suppressing columns?

Asked by Lara on 3/26/2009 5:17:04 AM

I want to conditionally display columns by adding a formula to suppress when a condition is met. This works fine, except now there are big white spaces between the columns. How can I get rid of those? I’ve tried adding a stylesheet, when the condition is met, set the width to 0px, but that doesn’t work either. Please help??? Thanx in advance:)

How can i use 'Can Grow' option with a number frield in crystal report

Asked by Rinku on 10/17/2008 7:35:17 PM

I am designing a report which has many fields to be displayed. Due to this my fields are overlapping if presented on a single line. I used the " Can Grow " option in the format options and was able to grow the text boxes to multiple lines. However some reference numbers that i use on the report are too long and i want them to be displayed on multiole lines so that i can arrange all the fields in one line. Crystal reports is not showing me " Can grow " option when i right click on number field. Does anyone know how to get around this problem.
