I am tryibng to create some maining labels from a select set in ColdFusion. I have edited my Avery_5160.cfr so that it contains 4 lines:
query.name
query.names2
query.address
query.city & ", " & query.state & " " & query.zip

I have no problem printing a label with for lines except when there is no value for query.names2 for a record. It prints a blank space. What I am trying to do is, if query.names2 is empty then put a black in the first line and put query.name into the second line.
Here is my CF code to do this:
...................
<cfquery name="QryData" datasource="#session.controller.datasource#">
 SELECT *
 FROM #rd_info.TABLE_NAME#
 WHERE results_session_id = #get_res_sess_id.results_session_id#
 </cfquery>
 
<cfset QryLabels = QueryNew("name,names2,street,city,state,zip")>
 
<cfloop query="QryData">
 	<cfset tmp = QueryAddRow(QryLabels)>
 
 <cfif len(trim(attributes.attribute12))> 
    <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "name", QryData[#attributes.attribute11#][CurrentRow])>
    <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "names2", QryData[#attributes.attribute12#][CurrentRow])>	
<cfelseif len(trim(attributes.attribute11))>
	    	<cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "names2", QryData[#attributes.attribute11#][CurrentRow])>
 <cfelse>
  	<cfoutput><script>alert('No name fields selected');self.history.back();</script></cfoutput>
  	<cfabort>
 </cfif>
 
 <cfif len(trim(attributes.attribute21)) and len(trim(attributes.attribute22)) and len(trim(attributes.attribute23)) >
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "street", QryData[#attributes.attribute21#][CurrentRow] & " " & 
 
QryData[#attributes.attribute22#][CurrentRow] & " " & QryData[#attributes.attribute23#][CurrentRow])>
 <cfelseif len(trim(attributes.attribute21)) and len(trim(attributes.attribute22)) >
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "street", QryData[#attributes.attribute21#][CurrentRow] & " " & 
 
QryData[#attributes.attribute22#][CurrentRow])>
 <cfelseif len(trim(attributes.attribute21)) >
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "street", QryData[#attributes.attribute21#][CurrentRow])>
 <cfelse>
  <cfoutput><script>alert('No address fields selected');self.history.back();</script></cfoutput>
  <cfabort>
 </cfif>
 
 <cfif len(trim(attributes.attribute31)) and len(trim(attributes.attribute32)) and len(trim(attributes.attribute33)) >
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "city", QryData[#attributes.attribute31#][CurrentRow])>
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "state", QryData[#attributes.attribute32#][CurrentRow])>
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "zip", QryData[#attributes.attribute33#][CurrentRow])>
 <cfelseif len(trim(attributes.attribute31)) and len(trim(attributes.attribute32)) >
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "city", QryData[#attributes.attribute31#][CurrentRow])>
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "state", QryData[#attributes.attribute32#][CurrentRow])>
 <cfelseif len(trim(attributes.attribute31)) and len(trim(attributes.attribute33)) >
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "city", QryData[#attributes.attribute31#][CurrentRow])>
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "zip", QryData[#attributes.attribute33#][CurrentRow])>
  <cfif Len(Trim(attributes.default_state_value))>
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "state", attributes.default_state_value)>
  </cfif>
 <cfelseif len(trim(attributes.attribute31)) >
  <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "city", QryData[#attributes.attribute31#][CurrentRow])>
 <cfelse>
  <cfoutput><script>alert('No city, state, name fields selected');self.history.back();</script></cfoutput>
  <cfabort>
 </cfif>
</cfloop>

I think you should change the cfif statement because the value of attributes.attribute12 is not changing but the query values are:

<cfif len(trim( QryData[#attributes.attribute12#][CurrentRow]))>
   <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "name", QryData[#attributes.attribute11#][CurrentRow])>
   <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "names2", QryData[#attributes.attribute12#][CurrentRow])>  
<cfelseif len(trim( QryData[#attributes.attribute11#][CurrentRow]))>
                <cfset tmp = QuerySetCell(QryLabels, "names2", QryData[#attributes.attribute11#][CurrentRow])>
 <cfelse>
        <cfoutput><script>alert('No name fields selected');self.history.back();</script></cfoutput>
        <cfabort>
 </cfif>
