How do I stop blank lines appearing in addess labels. In MS Office it's something like
TRIM([addess3])
so if address 3 is blank addess 4 is printed
In a real example
Gerry Neary [Name}
14 Bird Gardens [add1]
Croydon [add2]
Surrey [add4] add3 being blank
sw34 6tf [postcode]

Help

Search the help file of OOo for conditional text / conditional field.

Eliminating blank lines
If a field might be blank, then the process to suppress the potentially blank line is:
1)In the mail template, place the cursor before the field.
2)Control+F2 (or Insert > Fields > Other... ) to open the Fields dialog.
3)Switch to the Functions tab.
4)Select the field style Hidden Paragraph and type in the Condition area “not(field name)”.
5)Click on the Insert button to insert the function into the document.
