Use document property as condition in IF field?

Default Use document property as condition in IF field?

I need to use IF fields that can toggle values between two values of the "Company" document property. I tried to do it using Quick Parts > Field > IF, and coded it to look like an example that used MERGEFIELD; I put DOCPROPERTY in the same position. It didn't work, but here's how it looks when I show the field coding:

{IF {DOCPROPERTY Company} = "Acme" "Star" "Meteor" \*MERGEFORMAT}



The function should result in the brand "Star" if the company is Acme. If not, the brand is "Meteor". The result is currently:

Company}

Can someone explain how to use a docproperty in the IF field?

The DOCPROPERTY field needs to have its own field braces, created via Ctrl-F9 - you can't simply type the braces (i.e. '{ }').

I expect that Paul's suggestiong solves your problem. Otherwise, you can find more documentation on and examples of using the IF Field here: IF Field
