Printing a student's Preferred Name

This code will print a student's preferred name IF it's not blank, otherwise it will print their first name. This has been tested in object reports AND mailing labels.


So, if the kid's name is Joseph but his preferred_name field (on Modify Info page) is set to "Joey", it will print Joey. If his preferred_name field is blank, it will print Joseph.
