I searched the forum but didn't find an answer to my question. I am wanting to change the default Burial Sentence Template. Currently I have it written this way < b>burial:< /b>< [PlaceDetails:Plain]>< [Place:Short]> but it's still not exactly how I would like. In many instances, the name of the cemetery is not known. so I would like it to read "burial: city, state" but instead it reads "burial: in city, state". I know if I use [Place:Short:Plain] that would remove the preposition, but I still want the preposition to be used if there's a cemetery listed in the [PlaceDetails] field, so is there a switch I can use to have [Place:Short:Plain] appear when [PlaceDetails] is blank but have it be [Place:Short] when [PlaceDetails] is NOT blank??

Have you tried "Value Switches"? See Help>Search>Sentence Template Language. This shows how to build IF>Then>Else logic in sentences.
