I have a report to show a property inventory.

Basically it has one record for each room.

The record also has a field for storing a path to a photo

I would like to format the report so there is no blank space in records which do not have a photo. What is the best approach for this?

Many thanks Mark.

RE: Display image for each record only when available

You could write some code in the On Format event of the section of the report containing the image.

This is what worked for me. I checked for a different condition and have different sizes and names. Section(0) is the detail section.

CODE --> vba

Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
    If Me.TotalQty > 0 Then
        Me.Image3.Visible = True
        Me.Section(0).Height = 4 * 1440
        Me.Image3.Height = 1440
        Me.Image3.Visible = False
        Me.Section(0).Height = 1440
        Me.Image3.Height = 1
    End If
End Sub
