I'm trying to produce a different report dependent upon parameters. i.e if the order type is 'PRICE ENQUIRY' then I want to print columns x,y and z and if the Order type is 'Order Acknowledgment' I want to print columns w,x,y and z.
I've got numerous dynamic labels etc already in the report but I can't create a report which doesn't leave an ungainly space where column w should be.

You might need to duplicate the layout model in the body section. Then, write the format trigger on the repeating section. i.e. return true depending on paramter in one situation and vice-versa on the other situation. This will do the job. Key is to keep the repeating frame with the vertical elasticity as variable so that it does not leave the blank space when one frame does not print.....
