    Hi

    We have a requirement to create merged documents at different points in our CRM package. The required data is stored in an SQ database and is retrieved using merge fields or XML code assigning data to various bookmarks .

    My query is to whether the merge fields can be suppressed if they are not used? Otherwise they just print alongside the data retrieved at the bookmark.
    cheers

    You can use Word's {IF} field to check whether a merge field is blank. This is a common problem in address merges, e.g., no job title or second line of an address, so you might find more examples in that context. In addition to the IF field containing the merge field, it also can contain the label/caption that you want to appear next to the merged data.

    I'm not sure what the second sentence means, so maybe this doesn't really get at the issue...
