      need help with address label script/calculation

      Post

      Ok heres my dilemma.

      I'm using Pro 8.5 Contact Management Database to make some mailing labels from my database.

      I have a field called Full Name 2 which is a calculation of Title 2 & " " & First Name 2 & " " & Last Name 2.  The end result being Ms. Jane Doe.  The same goes for Full Name 1.

      On many entries we have Mr. & Mrs. John Doe as the result of Full Name 1, and only "Jane" in the field First Name 2.  So on my address labels I have it set up to display this.

      <<Full Name 1>>

      <<Full Name 2>>

      Now most of the time Full Name 2 will cancel itself out because there is no information in any of the referenced fields, but because there is a name in First Name 2 I end up getting this on my mailing labels.

      Mr. & Mrs. John Doe

        Jane

      1234 West Street

      USA

       

      I need to figure out a way to get the calculation Full Name 2 to cancel itself out if there is no information in Title 2, filemaker of course only lets it cancel itself if theres no information whatsoever.  I have tried different approches within the calculation for Full Name 2 and in the scripts I run to get into the address labels with no luck.  Clearly I'm not quite thinking in the Filemaker Pro language.

      Does anyone know the script or calculation that I can use to get this to work??
