It is quite common for the documents generated with RPE to include tables and just as often the content of those tables is dynamic, based on the results of a query. Typically these tables have one header row which contains the labels of the data. In these circumstances if there is no data to populate the body of the table output will contain only the empty shell of the table or a table having only the header row.
RPE 184.108.40.206 offers a new table property called “remove if empty” which when set to true will cause the table to be removed from the output if it has no rows or has only header rows.
NOTE: the property’s default value is false to ensure older templates ran in 220.127.116.11 produce the same output as the older RPE versions.
The property can also be applied to table rows to avoid rows with no cells.
