WWI template formatting

Dear Experts,

Today I came with some different requirement.

As shown below on the figure, the Danish translation is there. Also, a MAL Code is there in the same box.

The requirement is that, the MAL code box should appear on the Danish translation box. I did tried to do it but it is happening something like below.

The Danish translation text is not adjusting around MAL Box and it is going behind of it where as requirement is that, text should move around the MAL box as shown above.

and the 2nd part of requirement is that, when the Danish translation is not available then entire Blank Border get skipped or hide.

I know how to Blank Compress the text if no values found but not sure how to Blank Compress the Border Box and MAL code box.

Can anybody guide me here.

Thanking You,

    Hi Amol.

    I hope it is in label.

    for your first question -

    This is a position functionality (General MS word Functionality).

    while selecting the MAL CODE text box, Drawing Tools > Position

    After inserting the Text box, you can drag and drop the box - between the text and you can see the text behaviour. the same not get hided by the text box.

    for your second question -

    Usage of Blank compression for text boxes -

    This is a similar usage of null group like others.

    for ex -

    <13BNG001 (*:01Z1234567SY(G:1)>

    *********Text BOX*******


    *********Text BOX*******

      Hi Kamal,

      Once again thanks for reply.

      Somehow I am not able to replicate it.

      Can you please do the needful to send me the word file. That will be easy to understand.

      Thanking You

    Dear Amol

    the first part is easy as it is standard word functionality. PLease refer to microsoft help regarding that as its is standard functionality.

    Check may be:

    The second part is not so easy: I am not sure if you will succeed here. Therefore my proposal would be. try it step by step.

    First option: can you live with a "frame" without border ?


    Can you check this: can you prepare e.g. a table oriented outpput with blank compression (left part text, right part box)?

    Quite tricky thing really. Nether had similar demand. As in GHS most companies live with "empty" boxes for "symbol"

    Very interesting demand.
