In most Word search-and-replace operations, the Tab Character is represented by "^t" (caret-t). However, when I try to insert a Tab Character as part of Mail Merge's "Text To Be Inserted Before" (when editing a field code), I get a literal ^t and not a Tab Character (action). The same is true if I try to use an IF() statement to conditionally insert a Tab Character. I only get ^t.
I have a mail merge document where I want to use a tab with a dotted leader, but only when that field is populated. I don't want a string of dots if there's no value in that field.
Q. - How can you conditionally insert a Tab Character (action) in a Word Mail Merge?
