How to insert mail merge fields in Apple Pages 5.6.2
I want to create personnel directory in Apple Pages by merging with database (e.g. Numbers, CSV, Excel, etc.)
Google searches refer to 'Merge' command in Insert Menu.
Not so, on my 2 Macs (Sierra & El Capitan) and 'Blank' document there is no Insert/Merge command. Adding table does not help.
I know there are other methods, e.g. MS Publisher, Swift Publisher. However, office person only knows basic Pages text editing.
"I’ve recently upgraded to OS X Yosemite as well as to the latest versions of Apple’s Numbers and Pages apps. Is there a way I can use the two of them to create mail merge documents?
There is, although it’s not a feature directly built into either app. This is possible through the power of AppleScript (don’t worry, I’m not going to ask that you learn AppleScript in order to carry out this job). Instead, I’ll direct you to the Mac OS X Automation site. Here you’ll find an AppleScript and Pages page that provides instructions for using the free Pages Data Merge utility (the page also includes a link to that utility)."
Ok, I give up - No 'Merge" why not?
