Hello,

I am trying to create a mail merge template for a directory listing. It has a 3 column layout, and the records fill the left most column before proceeding one column to the right.

I am having an issue trying to label the records. Any label text added before of after the mail merge field is repeated for each record, but I would only like The labels to appear after certain records. Does anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish this?

Can you do this as a table?

Certain records?

You can use an IF field to test a the value of a mergefield and add something according to result,

e.g.

With field codes showing (Alt+F9) it might look like this:

{ IF { MERGEFIELD Showlabel }  = "Y" "{ MERGEFIELD MyLabell }" }

You seem to be using 'snaking' columns. That shouldn't be a problem. However, you also appear to have a one-to-many datasource, which Mailmerge doesn't do directly. However there are some workarounds listed here:
