    Trying to settle on some methodology to emulate word's if-then-else mail merge in filemaker layouts

    CanDo!

      Has anyone done something like this before?

       

      Most of the if-thens are referring to whether to use plural or singular forms of verbs (i.e.. is/are  provides/provide) and whether to tack "s" at the ends of certain words. Generally, if there are portal rows generated.

       

      My first crack at it was to create multiple layouts - and that worked...

      but having to change multiple layouts (when making alterations at a later date) is hard to maintain.

      And, depending on how many ifs, could generate a bunch of separate layouts for one form.
