  • Question

  • I have the following in a Word 2016 document -

    2. When the field has contents -

    ________________________________
    the patriarchs to be charted – you may well descend from more than one patriarch.  
    Your relationship to me: My Fourth Cousin

    I have attached, to this email, a few pages drawn from the PDF of a book Overall Down Under, which

    How do I include a paragraph mark in the MERGEFIELD statement, so that the resulting document snippet would be

    ________________________________

  • I sorted it.  To my great surprise all I had to do was enter a paragraph mark within the quotes immediately before the Y in Your.

  • Depending on your requirements, you could use:

    { MERGEFIELD Relationship_to_Johnson_Extended_Family \b "¶
    Your relationship to me: "}

    or:

    { MERGEFIELD Relationship_to_Johnson_Extended_Family \b "Your relationship to me: " \f "¶
    "}

    where the ¶ is a real paragraph break or line break.
