Title

Formatting layout for a catalog report

Post

I am trying to design a report that displays information in a catalog format. The catalog has multiple sections grouped by a Category field. I have created a Sub-summary Part that sorts by Category and I have placed the Category field in the Sub-summary so that the data in the Body of the report shows up under the appropriate Category heading. My problem is that each category has a description that varies in length. I can use the Sliding/Printing feature to shrink the field, but I still end up with empty space because the height of the Sub-summary Part stays the same.

 

Is there any way to shrink the Sub-summary Part? I am working in Filemaker Pro 9. I have some experience with Filemaker, but I've not had any formal training so there are gaps in my knowledge.

 

 

Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
