    Hiding blank controls in view


    I have an InfoPath 2007 form with different views (summary, address, finance, etc.) which users have to complete. The last view is an overview of ONLY the fields (in sections) containing data. That means if a field is blank, it should not appear in the view.

    I have tried this with duplicating all the fields of the form on the Overview page, and then using conditional formatting to hide the controls that are empty, BUT this produces a page with a lot of blank spaces in-between...

    Any suggestions from your side would be much appreciated!

    It is the unique solution but you would not have a lot of black space.

    In order to avoid this spaces, select the table within the control is put, and then select properties, then "line" tab, and put autofit (or automatically adjust, I don't know the exact term because I have a french edition).

    Do this on each array of your form, and you will not see blank space when the control is empty!

    Hope this help.
