Hi,

I'm working in Word 2007.  If want to create an "IF" equation where I evaluate whether the concatenation of four Merge Fields = "".

Fields are:

{ MERGEFIELD "Horizontal1" }
{ MERGEFIELD "Vertical1" }
{ MERGEFIELD "Hardware1" }
{ MERGEFIELD "Code1" }

Equation should look something like:

{ IF (concatenated fields...)="" ">" "{ MERGEFIELD "Horizontal1" }"}

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance :-)

Hi Bill,

There is a Quote field, but double quotes should do the same job.

{ IF "{ MERGEFIELD "Horizontal1" }{ MERGEFIELD "Vertical1" }{ MERGEFIELD "Hardware1" }{ MERGEFIELD "Code1" }"="" ">" "{ MERGEFIELD "Horizontal1" }"}
