Is it possible to insert an image using INCLUDEPICTURE mergefield only if the image path exists.
If the image path does not exist, then place the text "<SIGNATURE_IMAGE_MISSING>"

Thanks

Hi,

I have tried your code,
I have defined defined the "image" merge field using { SET Image "C:\\image.jpg" }
Is this correct?

I have deliberately specified a location I know there is no image in, and I am seeing a field calculation error when completing the mail merge.
