Hide a report section

When you create a report, you may not need to display the contents of every section all the time. Rather than deleting a section, you can hide it. This way, you don't need to re-create it later. Once you hide a section, the updates to the report are reflected in the Contents pane and the report view. In the Contents pane, the section is not checked to show it is unavailable. In the report view, the section no longer appears and the next section in the report takes its place. When a supplemental page is hidden, the Contents pane is updated. The section is not checked and the page does not appear in the report document view.

Each report section has a Format tab where you can control the size and appearance for that section. To hide a section, follow these steps:

  1. With a report open, select the report section you want to hide in the Contents pane.
  2. Click the Format tab for the section to hide.
  3. Uncheck Show section in the Size group.

    The section is removed from the report view and appears unavailable in the Contents pane.

  4. To show a hidden section, select the section in the Contents pane and check Show section on the Format tab.
