has anyone had this problem:?

The variables go like this: @salutation@ @firstname@ @last name@ but if the person does not have a salutation then the first name starts out slightly right of being flush left with the text below


John Smith
abc company,

The space in front of John is the space that must be put in to separate the 3 fields. I tried LTRIM but that only seems to strip out empty spaces from the data base.

Any help appreciated.
