Template fields for Mailmerge

Hello,

 

In my template, I'm trying to get a field to recognize de Gender field value from the database to put the proper address (ie Mister or Madam) in my document (ex Gender = Male then print Mister "Surname").  I tried using the IF command but I can't seem to figure it out.  Please help!

 

Thanks

Re: Template fields for Mailmerge

There is not a way to programatically do this without out using an add in.  Basically you want the mail merge to be conditional. Nonrthwoods Mail Merge will do this.  It really can't be done out of the box with just aCT and wordl EASILY.

 

I'd sugest adding the appropriate fields to hte aCT databae or putting the full name as you want to see it in the contact field.
