Hi: I checked my trusty book, 'FileMaker Pro 8 THE MISSING MANUAL', and it's missing all kinds of things.

I have three rows of data in the body - data1 to data3. Data1 always appears in every record and there's a mix of data2 and data3 appearing. I would like to label the data on the same row in the body of the layout only if there is data present. That way, if there's no data, the fields and labels don't print and everything slides up. In the example provided, the calc doesn't work, can anyone help? Thanks in advance! Maybe there's a better way to do this?

You have a syntax error in your calculation. Try instead:

If ( not IsEmpty ( Data2 ) ; "Datalabel2" )

You can also combine all labels in a single calculation field:

"Label 1" &

Case ( not IsEmpty ( Data2 ) ; "¶Label2" ) &

Case ( not IsEmpty ( Data3 ) ; "¶Label3" )

Adjust the field's line spacing to align each label with its data field.
