Removing unwanted space from in between tables

Simple method for removing unwanted space from in between tables

I stumbled onto something that is apparently not documented anywhere...not that I am aware of anyway. Very simple and useful. Many times, I will create a table and sometimes realize, after building it exactly as I want it and creating elements within it, that I need another row. Upon creating another one row table to make up the difference, (rather than re-creating the whole table), I realize that with cursor positioned beneath the first table and holding down the delete key will only pull the second table to within one line, leaving the remaining space blank in between the two and throwing off the desired format. Creating a useless hidden field here will remove that space(line or lines) will still be there in designer, but when you use the form in Notes, it is gone. Another use: When you have a table at the top of your form, and want it to appear at the very top of that form, but cannot seem to get it to the first line. Again, adding a useless hidden field at the top of the form will remove that line when previewed in the appearance that the table begins at the true top of the form.
