Solveig's blog from 2007 describes an inconvenient work around for Writer, and Mail Merge.

Please point to a simple 2013 description of the work around for Base Report Builder.
There may be a way of using conditional groups in Base but the Builder GUI is inscrutable and a search of likely keywords finds nothing in the help documentation.
