    Will the AND/OR etc. options be available for WM-If in the next version of WebMerge?

    Any views on this, Richard? Nesting the IF function and/or giving it more flexibility (AND/OR!) would be a very powerful feature.

    I, too, have needed an AND IF and have jumped through hoops without it.

    Probably not the next version, as the focus for v2.4 will be file name options and I don't want to hold up that release.

    Version 3.0 will include a powerful query engine which will let you do that and more.

    One thing I'd like to see in future versions is a test like WM-If, or a similar option in the "Generation" tab, that will allow us to set conditions for whether a page is generated at all.

    So, for example, we could have WM not generate a page if a field is blank in a given record, or if it's not a desired string, or....etc.

    Having the ability to string together multiple requirements such as that with AND/ORs would be really useful, also.

    That's exactly what the query engine will provide.
