I can't figure out how to keep a field from printing. Text fields and buttons are easy, but not fields. I think I'm overlooking something obvious.
Thanks.

Use a report layout, and then place fields inside conditional objects. Define the conditional objects to display the layer with a field when certain condition is true, otherwise display an empty layer.

Alternatively, create a font color expression to make the color white when you want it hidden. On those printers which do print in white, should you find one, it will be nearly invisible.

If you don't want a field to print, why is it there?

Are you printing a form? Not recommended...

As Tom and Stan implied, use a report layout to print.

Otherwise, please explain more about the basis of your situation, please.
