The trick is to filter the records out before they make it to the report.
1. If you don't already have a query to feed this report, create one.
2. In the Criteria row under your [Description] field, enter:
Is Not Null
3. Set this query as the RecordSource for your report.
Now the records don't come to the report if the field is null, and so the
numbering problem is solved.
