Although I haven't used it in a long, long time, Word also has a
conditional text function. To begin, select Insert>Field from the
menu, select Document Automation as the field type, then look at
the IF statement. You should be able to find complete instructions
in the Mail Merge section of the manual.

Hope this helps.
