    I'm sorry for intruding, but I thought you might be able to help. I just loaded Quark 8 and need to know if there is a program to mail merge addresses onto the back cover of a book being printed. I had heard that Xdata was OK. Have you any suggestions? Any advise would be great.
    If you need any outsource art design or web design, please contact me. I see you need someone in house, unfortunately, not qualified yet with "variable data specialists", that's what I am asking you about, but give me some time and I'll be up to it....All other pre-press design, layout, etc., I have more than 20 years experience. Anyway, and help in the area of mail merge would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    And, sorry again...
