Yes, the report will return a label showing the address or PO box on two separate lines.  However, 
we would like the PO box to show where the address line would normally be.  Seems like a function 
should work for this.  If address line available, print, if not, print PO box.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Address block in Base report
Date: Tue, 10 Sep 2013 07:50:39 -0700 (PDT)

Windows XP, SP3

We have created a Base database from Access 2003.  One of the reports, based
on a query, is to print labels.  The first line is for the name, second line
is for the company name, third line is for the street address or PO Box, and
the last line is for the city, state and zip code.  We would like the PO Box
to show on the third line if there is no given address.  Using the Function
Wizard, we have tried the following:  "IF([STREETNO]&"
"&[STREET]ISBLANK;[POBOX];[STREETNO]&" " [STREET]") - this doesn't show any
information.  We tried to reverse it "IF([POBOX]ISBLANK;[STREETNO]&"
"&[STREET];[POBOX]) - no data appears.  We have tried to use " " instead of
ISBLANK, same thing, no data.  

Any ideas?


Without the function does the query return the correct information?

A typical SQL query would look like this:

SELECT  person, company, address1, address2, city, state, zip (use your column names)
FROM    contacts (use your table name(s))

Also, does the form/report return a label that is correct without the function? 
I have found sometimes trying the minimalist approach first yields the results I wanted.
