How to hide email template sections when no data

Hello, I’m looking for a way to hide sections of an email template when there’s no data populated. Can someone assist? A million thanks!

Please elaborate what the template START contains- there is not enough info to assist.

the template is based on the job order table and the only start expressions are in the sections with the black headers: here’s the detail:

Out of each table; construct an IF statement with COUNT expression:

<<If: COUNT(SELECT(Tablename[Key], {Y/N Condition}) > 0>>

and at the end of each table, close the IF statement


Thanks Levent, do you mean place the IF statement before and after each section?

Hi Levent, hope all is well. Just noticed, those “empty” email sections are appearing again on my report. Here’s a copy of the finished report with the empty sections and the template with formulas. The only thing I updated a week or so ago is I added the OrderBy to the section’s start expression. Could this cause the IF formulas to stop working?

Absolutely Daisy.

The point of the <<If>> expression is to exclude everything that follows up to the <<EndIf>> when the <<Start>> does not return any records. That only works if the <<If>> is counting exactly the same records that the <<Start>> returns.

I strongly suspect that your change to the <<Start>> no longer matches the <<If>>.
