your assertion is only partially true - header, groupheader, transheader and body sections don’t take any space when they are not printed, but footer and groupfooter section do. I think that this is because of the fact that navision cannot tell in advance whether a footer or groupfooter section will occur, so it keeps the needed space available just in case…
And Luana is right, sometimes this may be really annoying.
A way to avoid to use footer sections, is to add a section based on the integer table just after the dataitem to which the footer section would belong, at the same level, and print your “footer” as a body section in the new dataitem…
Groupfooter section are more tricky, but something may be cooked up too. [:)]
The problem is this happening in PageLoop footer Section. I have 4 PageLoop footer.
I have pageloop footer 5, pageloop footer 6, pageloop footer 7 and pageloop footer 8.
pageloop footer 5 is always printed, and then pageloop footer 6 or pageloop footer 7. If pageloop footer 6 is not printed, I have a space between pageloop footer 5 and pageloop footer 7. The space for pageloop footer 6 is empty on my report
