Build a Word mergefield using other fields to complete the name?

I have a list of images (one per state) that I need to pull into my template and normally use a regular mergefield e.g., {MERGEFIELD “Image_FL_09252017”}. The image name is a combination of the state and date which I also have tags for, so I’m trying to create a dynamic mergefield to choose the correct image based on state and date.

Something along the lines of


However, Word seems to process the outside mergefield first instead of the inside mergefields. If I use an IF statement I can include static text to complete the mergefield, but as soon as I use another field it doesn’t work. Is this something that’s even possible within Word? Any help or direction is greatly appreciated!
