I’m not sure the best way to ask this question, but here goes!

I have the following formula…

Model & " " & VAR_Color & " " & VAR_Type & " " & VAR_Weight_Name & " " & VAR_GRIP_Circumference

Some of my “Models” are missing one or several of the VAR (fields) and when that happens I’m left with a double or even triple space.

I want to concatenate the formula in such a way that IF a field/VAR is empty that the VAR and the space in front of it are omitted, but if a VAR exists, then the VAR and the space in front of it are displayed.

Thanks in advance for any advice on how to revise/simplify this formula!
