How to suppress distribution of a blank (empty) crystal report

Using the Central Management Concole in Business Objects Enterprise XI SP2, how do I suppress the distrubution of a "blank" crystal report XI ?

I can build alerts that are e-mailed out but how do I include/exclude attaching the report with the appropriate alert?

E-mail message: The report is blank and therefore not attached.

vs. Please review report immediately. Report xys.pdf is attached.

Include if 'not blank' and exclude if "blank".

We distribute reports on a schedule and often, the report is blank.

This is possible with BOE XI 3.x by using the new "Publishing" functionality. You can setup a delivery rule that will not deliver a report to a recipient if the report contains no data.
