How to Suppress Blank Lines in Layout Table Reports

Description

Learn how blank lines in static HTML elements and empty rows in a Layout Table report can be omitted when the report is generated.

 Suppressing Blank Lines in Static HTML

Placing fields in a static HTML filed is a technique often used to display blocks of text, such as an address, in Layout Table reports. If a field is empty, however, this can create blank lines in the static HTML block. The blank lines can be removed by using the {begin:SuppressBlankLines} and {end:SuppressBlankLines} command directives. For example:

{begin:SuppressBlankLines}
{bill_address_1}
{bill_address_2}
{bill_city}
{bill_state_region}
{bill_country}
{bill_postal_code}
{end:SuppressBlankLines}
