Is there a script to convert file paths to placed images? I have a client that exports data from a database and places it into InDesign, but the data only includes the server path, not the actual images. We would like to run a script that goes to the path, grabs the image, and places it into InDesign. Does this exist?
Unless I misunderstood the question, I don’t think Data Merge could be of any help.
Did you mean that the file path is actually just text in your Indd document?
If so, maybe you can give this script a go: (haven’t tried it though) http://kasyan.ho.com.ua/indesign/image/place_images.html
