Title

Using fields in a letter & paragraph of set text

Post

     Hi there, I am using Filemaker Pro 13 Mac version. I have a database that has a various letters that has the standard address, name etc.However I have a include the customers name in a paragraph.

     Eg. 

     <<First Name field>> ,thank you for attending the appointment. Please can you visit our office next week.

     I have tried the Merge Field command and also used the standard field. I am using a text box that stores the text paragraph (, thank you) etc. As you can see with image attached, there sometimes can be a gap from the first name and the paragraph. If the first name is slightly longer it will clash with the first sentence. Plus the paragraph wont readjust automatically, mainly because its separate.

     So is there a better way to do this or is it not possible?

     Thanks in advance,

     Jude Ashton.
