Previous versions of Microsoft Works Word Processor included a feature for automatically hiding empty database fields when printing or previewing a word processor document that contained merged data from a database.


Although you cannot configure Works Word Processor to perform this function automatically, you can manually select the Don't print lines with empty fields option in the Print dialog box when you want to print or preview a merged document.

To enable the Don't print lines with empty fields option and print or preview a document:

  1. Start Works Word Processor, and then open the merged document.
  2. On the File menu, click Print.
  3. Under Mail Merge Print Settings, select the Don't print lines with empty fields option.
  4. To print the document, click OK.

To preview the document, click Preview.
