Conditional hyperlink depending on field
I'd like to have a hyperlink appear (or disappear) based on the presence of a field. The field is the name of the product.
In the end, I'd like the text to look like this:
To access Product x, click here.
I got the ''To access" part with an IF command to appear if the field Product X is filled in my excel database. However, when I try to apply an IF command to a Hyperlink field, it disables the link.
Any idea how I could fix that?
Thanks in advance!

Working hyperlinks cannot be nested inside IF fields. You mention product data being supplied from an Excel database. If that's via a mailmerge and the hyperlink is included in the Excel file, the Mailmerge Tips & Tricks Sticky thread at the top of this forum has an item that shows how you can turn 'To access Product x, click here' into a clickable hyperlink as part of the mailmerge process.Cheers,
