Word Template Blank Field Issue

I use Word 2013 as word processor on Windows 7 O/S.

 

I cannot find the execution command to close up Blank Fields for a letter and for an Envelope.

When opening the Edit Template to create a new template, Word Processor opens. The fields

are inserted (3 address fields) in the template but when printing there is a blank space during mail 

merge on some letters which don't require the three address fields.

 

Thanks for the help.

Hi Ark,

Not sure if this is just a Word isue but you  need to use full Carriage returns not half ones (do not use shift + enter)use the paragrah settings in word to be single line spacing and set the after to 0

try the word document I've hopefully it will work on your sytem as it does on mine (act! v22 and word 2016) 

 

you will ned to change the docx to adt file extension for it to merge in Act!

Word Template Blank Field Issue

The setting were as you suggested but the issue still exists with blank fields not collapsing.

I am uusing ACT V 18 Pro and in previous versions of ACT using Word there was way to collaspe

blank fields.

 

Any other suggestions would be helpful.

 

Thanks
