You could use the Ctrl-F9 approach to build the fields. However, if you already have your three IF tests, you can simply nest them. For example:

{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Both" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to Adults and Children" ""}

and:

There are no applicable conditions to this offer.

become:

{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Both" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to Adults and Children" " There are no applicable conditions to this offer."}

just by dragging ' There are no applicable conditions to this offer.' into the existing final field code. Similarly:

{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Adults" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to Adults" ""}

and:

{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Both" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to Adults and Children" " There are no applicable conditions to this offer."}

become:

{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Adults" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to Adults" "{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Both" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to Adults and Children" " There are no applicable conditions to this offer."}"}

just by dragging the combined field from the previous process into the preceding field code. And, by doing that one more time, you end up with:

{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Children" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to children" "{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Adults" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to Adults" "{IF{MERGEFIELD pvgdisclosure}= "PVG Both" " PVG: You successfully gain and maintain membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme in relation to Adults and Children" " There are no applicable conditions to this offer."}"}"}

The only (inconsequential) difference between that an what I suggested in post #2 is that I've left in some redundant double-quotes in this post.

Alternatively, you could use the macro found under Convert Text Representations of Fields to Working Fields in the Mailmerge Tips and Tricks 'Sticky' thread at the top of this forum (https://www.msofficeforums.com/mail-...ps-tricks.html) to convert the text representations of the field code in this post or post #2 into a working field code.
