Hide Null Fields (Stacked)

In my report footer, I need to hide fields that are null but keep the remaining fields together. Each fields control source is a formula / expression builder output.

Report Footer:

Desired output

In this example, Field2 and Field3 are the only null fields.

I've tried setting the field height to 0, stack all of the controls on each other, then set Can Grow to yes. The fields displayed over each other.


RE: Hide Null Fields (Stacked)

What are the expressions in the control sources?
Make sure there is no overlapping of the text boxes.
Make sure there are no labels or other controls to the left or right of the text boxes.
