Conditional mail merge field

I have Act 2010 and Microsoft Word 2007. When adding a country field in a group mail merge, how do I set the condition to appear only when it is not "USA"? I added the Country field in my template, then, after right clicking, "edit field", I tried the Address Block function and clicked the Excluded Country/Region option under Field Options, and typed in USA. After doing so, this changed the field in the Word document to "Address Block", and rather than showing the country in test outputs, it still shows "Address Block". I'm not a programmer and am not sure how to write a condition otherwise.

Re: Conditional mail merge field

This is not a feature of ACT out of the box. There may be an addin available, but i'm not aware of one.
