In a Word document I have a mail merge field that is coming from a MS Access database table.  The field is a Yes/No field in the Access table and is coming across to the Word doc as either "True" or "False".  

What I would like to have happen on the Word doc is if the result =  "True" then display an "X"

Can this be done and if so, how?

Hi,

pls refer to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/examples-of-if-fields-HP005187676.aspx


Something like this
{ IF { MergeField Boolean } = "True" "X" "" }

Open in new window
