try different fields (alternative names)

Discussion created by tobwen on Oct 8, 2012
Let's say, a road has the name "William-Bill-Gates-Road".

If the road is too short, the label can only be abbreviated by using a dictionary in Maplex.
Is it possible to make Maplex try several label fields, if one is not fitting?
These alternative labels would be crated by an external software.

Structure in the databse:
William-Bill-Gates-Road | William-Bill-Gates-Rd. | W.-Bill-Gates-Rd. | W.-B.-Gates-Rd.
