[CLOSED] Grow and Shrink Report Sections on Document

Hello, I have a compound document with two fex report files. One is in the top section of the page and the other report is below it on the same page. The output is all text sentences and paragraphs essentially.

Sometimes the first report on top does not have all the fields populated going down page vertically. In that case, I want it to "shrink" it vertically and just start printing the second report below it so there are no gaps if that makes sense.

I set both reports to Size and Overflow = Flowing from Fixed, but this didn't seem to work. Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks!
Output=PDF. version=8206

If I am understanding your problem it is the frames with each report you want to dynamically resize and move together. I don't think that is possible but you can check with techsupport by opening a case.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

This is a two-step process:
1) As you did: set both reports to Size and Overflow = Flowing from Fixed.
2) Link the 2nd report to the first report.
