PB v 9.0.2
EBF 5077

I have a composite report that has a nested report where a field that
contains comments cannot be part of the detail. This field is of varying
lengths and often times is null. Since it is not part of the detail
section, the auto-size height does not work. I've tried making the box
bigger, but it just leaves white space when the comment is smaller or null.

I cannot make the comments a separate report, because then it would not be
associated with the appropriate disease.

Any ideas for a work-around?

Thanks,
Loya

Starting with PB 10.5 autoseize height works on all bands, so here is a good
reason to upgrade to the current release 11.5
