You get round that by a combination of sentence structure and selecting the
form of the name you want in the tag itself.
There's a pull down list on each tag next to the name.
So if you have a Name-Nick set up with Robert in it
And use PF in the sentence you'll get Robert

Terry's tips
will no doubt have a lot more about this in it

I'm not sure if the name pulldown bits are available in Beginner data entry
or only advanced

If a person is named John Robert Smith, [PG] allows us to output John Robert

in reports. [PF] will yield John. But some people commonly use only their
middle name but not their first name. If I enter only the name "Robert" in
the Name-common tag, how do I code the variable in a later Tags for reports?

Will [PC] result in only the name "Robert" being outputted in reports?
