Drop Down Descriptions Field

I am trying to create a Mail Merge document that will allow me to input several paragraphs into an MS Word document during a Mail Merge. The paragraphs required will depend on the payment terms for the client. Each client has a payment option from a drop down box (50% deposit and payment in full).


At the moment I have the drop down box choices as “50% deposit” or “payment in full” and associated descriptions containing the paragraphs. But I am struggling to find a way to insert the “descriptions” field (if it exists) into the Word document.


Can this be done, or is there a better way to do this?


Using ACT Professional 8.0 and MS Office 2003.

Re: Drop Down Descriptions Field

Unfortunately, the descriptions cannot be added to a template.  I would have two templates.  One for 50% deposit and other for payment in full.
