Hi Alan,

Thanks for your response. So far as I can see, the problem does not lie
in Base but within the Text Document (Writer) modules. The address line
suppression should form part of the "Print from Base" window in Text
Document after you have inserted fields from your database.

Though (if I see it correct) not your initial question, I give some related info. You probably are aware that it is possible to put a conditional Hidden paragraph field in the paragraphs?
Not so convenient, I agree, but it can be done.

Note: when inserting such a field, be sure that the various mail merge fields are in a separate paragraph. When fields are inserted via the dialog for Labels, they are at separate lines, but in one paragraph. You have to correct that in the document.

Also: looking at the window Fields, tab Database, there is a field Condition left at the bottom. I can be used when entering a Next record field, however not with a Mail merge field. That looks as a 'relatively easy' way for such an enhancement.
