    Formatting fieldcodes (WordXP SP3)

    Hello

    For my fieldcode when i place the fieldcode in my doc an extra paragraph mark is displayed.
    In my fieldcode if there is data I would like to insert 2 extra paragraph marks. in the fieldcode if I insert a hard return - and there is no data the result is it displays extra paragraph mark.
    if i insert a soft return - again the formatting is not correct.

    pls see screen dump. the blue text is the formatting im after.
    paragraph mark
    data
    paragraph mark

    any ideas.

    Does a layout as in the screenshot below do what you want? Note that there are two paragraph marks outside the merge field brackets, but inside the quotes surrounding it.

    1) Make sure that the paragraph mark before the merge field is after the opening double quote.
    2) Try putting 2 paragraph marks after the merge field, before the closing double quote.
    3) Remove the last paragraph mark in the cell.
