[archive] Collapse, Preformatted and keep space...

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 22 December 2009]


To create a field in a report I've always the 3 options(collapse, preformatted and keep space).
I've tested the three options but still I've two issues:

1. When printing a field and even if the field contains no data and the print condition is set to don't print if the field has spaces, it's spaces is still kept in the report, (print condition = xyz not = ' ')

2. If the printed field has some data and the rest of the field is empty, the empty spaces is also kept, means that the original spaces is also kept.

3. Does the 'Collapse' means that the printed field will be expanded(collapsed) according to the received data or what?

Any tips to avoid these two issues?
