I will be adding this series («Companyname»«Firstname»«Lastname») to a variety of documents. During a merge in some instances the info will be a Companyname, in others, Firstname Lastname. When Companyname is used I want Firstname Lastname to be blank, not spaces, and when firstname lastname is used I want companyname to be blank (not a space) and a space to be included between firstname lastname.

Hi,

Why not try with IF

{ IF  { MERGEFIELD CompanyName  } = "" "{ MERGEFIELD FirstName  } { MERGEFIELD LastName  }" { MERGEFIELD CompanyName  }  }

for reference
