It sounds like those are actually records that may not have information in those particular fields/columns.

Did you make the report link yourself, or is this part of a relationship?

Maybe a small screen shot will help us diagnose.

I created the report link based on a relationship. Here's what it looks like embedded on the form.

The purpose of the extra lines is to be able to add child records ot the parent.  Do you need to have the embedded report be editable?  If not, then disable that in the form property for that field.

When you have the report link marked as "Editable" it leaves extra lines at the bottom for you to add more records.  If you are not adding line this way, uncheck the box to make it editable via the form element.  

It will only display this view when you are in "edit" mode for the parent record.  Otherwise it will display the normal view.

Let us know if you need more details on how to change that.

Unchecking editable in the form element properties worked perfectly! Thank you both very much for your help.
