  • data merge testing Indesign ???

    Anyone have any Idea why the image doesnt preview ( see attached screen grab)
    This is created from Indesign 5.02 I have created a csv file I tried every option I could think of
    to get this too work, Ive had no success anyone have any Ideas?
    I know the path is correct to the image but it will not display the image.
    probably something simple, just not sure what it is.
    Thanks Bret

    I think you are missing @ symbol in front of the image.

      I do have the @ symbol in front of the image in the field
      Here is what my csv file looks like in the fields

      first last address city state @pictures
      John Doe 6th street Mun Ind. then I paste the entire path in right here to images

      What should I do from here?
      Thanks Bret

        How about you post csv with one image and indd file and I take a look at it.
        It's hard to see anything in your screenshot and if you are sure you have @ symbol, it should work.
        The only other thing that comes to mind is are you sure your path is good?

          From what I see in your gif, you have forget that you need a picture frame, instead of a text frame when you apply the image filed to it. Try that...
