Default Multiple actions in an IF statement

Hi

Is it possible have multiple actions in an IF statement i.e. I want to combine some fixed text and mergefield together. An IF statement do to something like this

IF "condition" = "A" then "Correct" else "First Letter was " {MERGEFIELD FirstLetter}

E.g.
{ IF { MERGEFIELD FirstLetter } = "A" "Correct" "First Letter was " { MERFGEFIELD FirstLetter } }


FirstLetter = A you get "Correct"
FirstLetter = B you get "First Letter was B"

Is this possible or do I need multiple IF's?

TIA


Iam

Yes. Depending on what you're trying to achieve, the IF tests can be sequential or nested.

So I need multiple IF's to do this, I can't do it in one?

Well, the field syntax depicted in your initial post is close to being correct for what you described, but it's not clear what else you're trying to achieve. The correct syntax is:
Code:
{ IF { MERGEFIELD FirstLetter } = "A" "Correct" "First Letter was { MERFGEFIELD FirstLetter }" }
Note the re-located position of the final double-quote character.
