You can place PDF in a datamerge but not the doc format. The XML engine would'nt allow it neither. You can use the nice trick by Colin Chapman at Colecandoo but it may be difficult to use if the set of text is huge:
(Well can't find the page but you will find it there)
Otherwise EasyCatalog can import text dynamically depending on the data.
Thank you Loic, i'll take a look, I did download a trial of EasyCatalog but it appeared, as the name implies for Catalogs and would involve a huge amount of work but i'll investigate further. Thanks again for your response.
Don't get fooled by the name. It's clearly a powerful tool for catalogs but who can do more can do less. I am working on a flyers projet and we also use this feature that allows loading texts dynamically for any records depending on its data.
I¹ll give it a try, I assume that you are using an xml file as the data
source not an xls?
