I have created a layout in our company file entitled “Call Sheets” that includes portals linked to our contact file. The two files are related to each other through a unique identifier in the company record and in the contact record. The portals display all of the contacts at the company as well as the title descriptions of the contacts. My problem is the range of contacts that a company may have – some companies such as large ad agencies may have close to 90 contacts while small design firms may have only a handful of employees. In the past, we have printed Call Sheets for our researchers to make telephone calls to update the database or for other cases when it is helpful to have a print-out of all of the contacts at a company. As I currently have the layout formatted, the report requires 4 pages per company to accommodate the 90 contacts for the large ad agencies. Obviously, this means that for smaller companies there are 3 blank pages. Is there a way to format the layout so that the blank pages will not print when the report is saved as a .pdf file.


Thank you for any directions on how to solve this problem.
