Question Eliminating blank lines in mail merge (labels)

I am using Word 2013, part of office 365. I have been attempting to create several custom labels. The problem arises when a field is empty and on a line by itself. When I attempt to print the document, a blank line is printed where the field was positioned.




I want Word to ignore blank filed and NOT insert a blank line. I have found several conflicting suggesting for older versions of Word, but none for the 2013 version. I would have thought that Word would have a built in function to accomplish that, but evidently not.

I am open to suggestions. Thanks!

PS: Had you looked in the 'Mailmerge Tips & Tricks' thread at the top of the Mailmerge forum (which is where I've now moved your post to), you would have seen the solution there.
