You could create a 'template' document that contains 8 links to images called eg. IMAGE01, IMAGE02 etc. and not the images themselves. You could then select your 8 images in Delphi, copy them over the dummy images. When the Word document is now opened, the selected images will be showing in place of the dummy images and you can print the result.

If you need the Word document to be 'standalone' - ie. not dependent on external images - you will have to modify the word document (via a VB script perhaps) to embed the images themselves..

is there no easy way to do this ??? like using delphi to produce a word document with a table with enough cells to hold the images then assign each image to a different cell using something like the wordDocument component or something
