    Conditional fields with Data Merge

    tlhuynh Level 1

      I have, what I believe, would be a common question for people using Data Merge in InDesign for business cards.

       

      I have multiple phone fields, with a small-caps letter to indicate what type (mobile, direct, fax, etc.), i.e.:

      M <<Phone Mobile>>

      D <<Phone Direct>>

       

      If an employee has only one phone line, how can I make it so that the entire line will be omitted from the final merged doc?

       

      In the past, I've just gone through the final set and quickly removed extra lines/characters, but I know there's a way!

       

      Thanks.
