Large Graphic "Mail Merge" by Barry S.
I prepare a 30 page report every week and it has 20-30 1600x1200 pictures in the document. I would love to be able to effectively do a mail merge with them. (E.g. 1.JPG goes into a box with a box that knows that 1.JPG goes here.) What's the best way to do this? Thank you.
