I'm trying in Word '10 to do a mail merge, using an excel list which, among other fields, has a link to a picture online (which I'm provided through a form tool that converts uploaded images to a url by which I can access the uploaded image). Any ideas on how I could do a mail merge doc which takes this link and actually places the image into my mail merged results? I know it may be far-fetched, but alternative is to manually create the mail merge by auto-populating the text stuff, and then inserting one by one the appropriate images. Even with this (which is theoretically workable, but LONG as a process), would involve lots of file naming and tracking that I don't want to do.
Any ideas? Again, basic question is how to convert a url link to an image into an actual image that goes into the resulting doc. Thanks in advance for any thoughts. Word is the only thought that comes to mind, but possibly there's something in Adobe Pro forms or something. Just don't know.
