I have a spreadsheet, that has all the names for the images I'm using for a data merge. What I want to do is name the resulting records after the filenames in one of the columns in the spreadsheet. Is there anyway to do this? Or is there some other way to individually name the records from a data merge? I don't have any scripting prowess, so I can't really mess with that. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Add a column to the spreadsheet with the record name?
How do I mark the column as the record name?
You merge it along with the others, just like any field. ID cannot do the naming for you during the merge, but most spreadsheets have lots of logic capabilities that should allow you to extract a name for the record from the filename in the column of your choice. The only reason ID knows to find the image instead of writing the filename is that you've used a special name for the field.
