    Report Detail (grow/shrink) (2002 SP-2)

    I have a report that I email to clients in Snapshot Viewer. The detail area of this report rarely exceeds half a page, but there is critical (static) information concerning the report in the report footer. When they open the e-mail attachment, this footer is not seen unless they scroll down through all the blank space in the detail area. Because this report contains so few lines in the detail area, might there be a means of making the area "shrink" to display the footer; or will it always display as a full page size? Hmm, perhaps the footer information should be in the detail area?

    The Report Footer will follow immediately after the detail section (or after the last group footer if you have those), while the Page Footer will always be at the bottom of the page. Are you sure your static info is in the Report Footer? If so:
    - Don't leave unnecessary empty space below the "last" control in a section.
    - Set the "Can Shrink" property of the section and of text boxes etc. in the section to Yes.
    This applies to the Detail section and to group headers and footers.

    I had it in the page footer, rather than the report footer.

    Thanks (he said sheepishly).
