Default Paragraph Breaks In Mail Merge Fields

Hi all,

I'm putting together a mail merged document and am having a slight problem when it comes to paragraph breaks.

Basically, a number of entrants need a few paragraphs on the letter. Getting the text in is no problem at all (it's in the spreadsheet that is feeding the merge). However, when a person who does not need the extra paragraphs in is brought up Word leaves the paragraph breaks in, which leaves ugly big spaces in between the information.

Can anyone suggest a means of adding paragraph breaks on the document, without actually 'hard coding' it in the Word document. I'm thinking possibly some code in the merge tags themselves.

Any help appreciated!
