Default Multiple Merge Field in an "IF" Statement

When using an "IF" Statement in a Word Doc, is it possible to have the IF statement reference multiple Merge Fields?


The IF statement needs to check and see if there is a Date in the field "Rescission Date" field is SFDC, and if there is, the IF Statement then needs to check a different field, Called "State" and check for the State being CA.



If there IS a Rescission Date, AND the State IS NOT CA, then print the paragraph, else leave the paragraph off the document.


Basically, is this logic below correct?


{IF {MERGEFIELD Opportunity_Rescission_Date \*MERGEFOREMAT} <> "" {IF {MERGEFIELD Opportunity_State \* MERGEFOREMAT} <> "CA" "Text" ""}}


Cheers,
Shawn

All you need is:
{IF{MERGEFIELD Opportunity_Rescission_Date}<> "" {IF{MERGEFIELD Opportunity_State}<> "CA" "Text"}}

Not quite. Leaving aside the unnecessary (though not 'incorrect') use of the '\*MERGEFOREMAT' switches, inclusion of the final "" in your field construction was incorrect. You also had more spaces in the field construction than are absolutely necessary, but their inclusion is neither 'correct' nor 'incorrect'.
