small test database (four records, four fields each record)
Conditional text that should be printed (included) based on a database field followed by a database field that happens to by empty is not included. Problem does not occur in 6.0 (which has a different problem that appears to have been reported) but occurs in 22.214.171.124 and all versions thereafter (including 126.96.36.199 alpha). I do not know which version between 6.0 and 188.8.131.52 the problem arises in — haven't checked. Attached are three documents: a very small database, a label template, and the result of merging the db into the template. In short, the output should look something like
but what it produces (in the versions with the bug) is
"field" is conditional text base on whether a particular db field is empty or not;
following ir is the field "B" which is "B" in some records and empty in others.

Thanks for calling this to my attention. I'll get the latest version of LO sometime in the next week or so and try to reproduce the problem. I'll first start with the latest release version and if that is OK give the latest beta a try.
