    Snaked Column Report (97)

    Greetings!

    I have a family directory "snaked report" report consisting of three columns with six families in each column. The basic information for a family consists of 4 rows (name, address, city, phone). Some families have a line for children from a subreport. When I view the report as "Across Then Down", three family names are all lined up across the page in each of the six rows. That is how I want it to look. However, I do not want it "Across Then Down". I want it "Down Then Across". When I view it as "Down Then Across", the family names do not line up because some families have a line for children.

    What's a guy to do? [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    If you would like to help and what I have written does not make sense, please let me know and I will Email you a file that shows my problem.

    Thanks,

    Ken

    You can set the Can Grow and Can Shrink property of the subreport control to NO. This will made the subreport the same size on all records.

    Thanks Francois. If I do that I will have a blank line where the family does not have any children. I do not want any blank lines in the directory. Any other ideas?
