Default Graphics - Merge process

Hello Grahame

Yes, in out database we use two types of Graphic Images,
the Plots are "WMF" and the Photo's are "JPG".
Thanks for the advise

Merge to a new document, Select All (Ctrl+A) then press

F9 to update the
wmp? That's a Windows media player format. I thought we

were discussing jpg

Hi Grahame

Thank you for showing me the Obvious,I did as you
suggested, and removed the paths from the data file.
But I am still not able to merge the Graphic Images

the Document.
{IncludePicture "c:\\Temp\\{MERGEFIELD Description} "}
{IncludePicture "c:\\Temp\\plt1.wmp"}

I know it must be something I am doing incorrectly.
I have four Images in the data file and when I run the
MergeField Function I end up with Four empty windows

a small Red cross in each one!

If you look at your statement:
"If I toggle on the MergeField section I obtain:
{IncludePicture "c:\\Temp\\c:\temp\AFCDNs.jpg"}"

it should be obvious where the problem is - the path!
Either remove the paths from the data file or from the
IncludePicture field.

I am using Word2002 with Sp2

I have been trying to merge into a document a

image indirectly from Access 2002, since I have read
cannot be done directly.
Therefore I have saved the graphic image(wmf)in to a

directory on a drive and listed the file and

directory in
a table "tblPhoto" within Access.
I have then open a new document and written the

{IncludePicture "c:\\temp\\{MERGEFIELD Description


If I toggle on the MergeField section I obtain:

{IncludePicture "c:\\Temp\\c:\temp\AFCDNs.jpg"}

Assuming this is correct, using "CTRL +A" and F9
and "CTRL+A" again I should obtain the graphic on a

document, I have tried different sequences, but all

the same result.

The only way I have managed to input(Not Merge) a

image in was by using:

{IncludePicture "c:\\temp\\AFCDNs.jpg}

This works fine, but does not incorporate the other
graphic images from the list in the "tblPhoto" in


Any help please, I would be most grateful.
