My sub report has a manually designed table. Sometimes I need to display 10 to 30 rows within a single cell, sometimes only 2 to 5 rows. I'd like the field to auto-resize based on the number of rows needed. How can I remove the unecessary white space?

Here is the space delegated for the FYR field:

It's difficult to tell from your screenshots, but I think you want to activate Can Grow for the selected fields.

Resize them all back to the size of one row, then right click the fields, open Field Explorer, and select Can Grow. You'll probably want to activate this for the subreport as well if it hasn't been. This way the fields should stretch and shrink vertically based on the amount of data they have to display.
