I have some variable addresses ( from 1-9) that has static text after. I want the static text to stay close to the addresses. If I suppress the empty fields in the document, the returns from the variable fields keep the text from getting close the the last address. Is there a way to prevent the return from being entered if there is no data entry?
Make sure there are no spaces or punctuation between the data fields on each line.
I get that, however the returns between the addresses are necessary the keep them separate. If there is only one address, there are still multiple returns that keep the static text from moving up. That is the issue.
Can you show us the page with hidden characters showing? You should be using Space Before and Space After as part of the paragraph styles assigned to the listings, and checking the Delete Blank Lines box in the merge options.
