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!

SamuelT
