How to list students' typed comments in FileMaker Pro report?

Post

I'm a tech person, but a newbie at FileMaker, and everything seems to be counter-intuitive and perplexing in this software!  I've tried The Missing Manual, but it rarely answers my questions.

I have a database of students' responses to a questionnaire about each class and teacher.  Let's say I sort my records for one class, with 12 students.  For a text (comment) question, let's say only 5 students type a response and the others leave it blank. 

How in the world can I LIST those typed responses (like "This is my favorite teacher" and "She should speak more slowly") and omit the blank fields on a report?!

Also, I'd prefer to have the comments listed AFTER some subsummary numerical averages bar charts.  Is that possible?

I'd appreciate any help on this.  Also, if there's a MUCH better book on FM Pro 12, please let me know!
