Default Word mail merge (Excel Recipents) need to include PDF doc when pri

I've read through all the discussions and found a couple that are close.
However, I need to Merge a Letter with a PDF Document. The Letter pulls
Shipping Confirmation Codes & Addresses from Excel. The PDF document needs
to print with each of the letters for easier envelope stuffing. When I
"snapshot" each page of the PDF and insert into the Mail Merge Letter the
"details of the diagrams & skus" are less than legible. Please help!!!!!!!
Thanks so much, Glenda J Hall

Default Word mail merge (Excel Recipents) need to include PDF doc when

Hi Graham!
Thanks so much for the link but I don't understand. Is this suppose to work
for a "physical snail mail situation"? I would like to print the (merged
letters) with a couple of PDF documents so when they print, they print
together. I understand the concept (I think) but I am not that saavy. I was
able to pull up the "Alt F9-View Field Codes" -I read about in another
discussion but it was for text or pictures. Is there a particular text
string to put in for PDF's?

I so appreciate your help. I did get quite abit of great info from your
site for other projects I am working on as well.

Thank you GRAHAM!

I suggest that you get hold of Snagit from www.techsmith.com You can then
use the Snagit "printer" to convert your .pdf document into a .jpg that you
can then insert into the Word document. My experience with doing such
things is that there is almost no noticeable deterioration in the quality of
the document.

Hope this helps.

I had wrongly assumed an e-mail merge. In the circumstances I would go with
Doug's suggestion. You can get a working trial of SnagIt. You will need to
insert the images other than in-line then resize them to ignore Word's
margins, to which they will naturally adapt.

Thank both of you so very much! Works like a charm! Instead of using
snagit, I tested by saving the PDF 12 pg doc as jpeg. This separated the
pages into individual jpeg files. I changed my margins to .3 in word &
inserted them into the mail merge doc. When printed there was very minor
difference but a great printer made up the difference.
