    Mail Merged Pictures Do Not Save Properly in Document

    Hello all, I've been trying to create a mail merge document that uses a specific image for different views. This merge is of course based on an excel spreadsheet. When I'm looking through the preview, the pictures show up correctly in every example, but when I save them (Using: Finish & Merge -> Edit Individual Documents -> Current record), the document saves, but without the image. When I went back through after merging some 100 documents, I went back to find that they were all missing the image I merged into them. Why is this happening, and how can I get the images to save with the documents?

    I am using Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, Version 2008

    The code that I used in the document is:
    { INCLUDEPICTURE{ IF TRUE { MERGEFIELD Jpeg_1 } }\D }

    With an example filepath being: C:\Users\tadams\Documents\G1 TEST JPEG\446R.jpg

    Beautiful. Thank you for this incredibly helpful link! None of my research into this issue even came close to how specific and thorough that page is. Now if only Microsoft could make MailMerge make more sense haha.
