    I'm using Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007. i want to do a Mail Merge with an Access file to send out letters.

    2007 has a "Rules" command that opens up an idiot-proof window for the If - Then - Else command. Unfortunately, I'm more of an idiot than they bargained for.

    I want to set up a salutation line that will read either

    Dear Mr. Smith,

    or

    Dear Mr. Smith and Ms. Jones,

    So I type in Dear and then select the Title and LastName fields in the box. I select

    If Last_Name_2 is not blank

    then I go down to the box that asks you to insert text. I insert

    and

    After that, I try to insert the two new fields that I want

    Title2 and Last_Name_2

    but there's no way to select the fields to insert, and if I just type in << followed by Title2 >> , etc., that doesn't work.

    What do I do?

    Also, on my other computer I use Windows XP and Office 2003, which doesn't have the handy wizard that I can't figure out. How would I simply enter the code I need in Office 2003?
