I want to have an if statement in my Word mail merge document.  This is what I want:

IF {MERGEFIELD Prefix} = "Esq."  then
{MERGEFIELD FirstName} {MERGEFIELD LastName}, {MERGEFIELD Prefix}
else
{MERGEFIELD Prefix} {MERGEFIELD FirstName} {MERGEFIELD LastName}
End If

and there's a comma after the LastName in the second line and spaces in between the mergefields.

Can anyone give me the proper syntax for that?

Thank you -
