Using Picture Fields in Word Templates and Outlook

Let's say that I create a Picture Field in Act called 'BackProofPicture'

 

How, or is there a way, do I reference that picture for use in MS Word or Outlook?  Mainly Microsoft Word is what I am concerned with. I need to store color proofs of the work that we do for customers. All of our internal forms are in Word Format and we want to run a merge that prints a customer order document with their individual color proof inserted.

 

Any suggestions on add ons that will do this if ACT cannon?

Re: Using Picture Fields in Word Templates and Outlook

I've just added the photo field in the demo database to a Word template and it worked.

 

I'm using 10.02 - you might need to update (I can't remember if this was added in the full version or one of the patches)

 

You can download the current patch from http://www.act.com/support/updates/index.cfm

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks so much. I have the very elaborate templates in Word 2007 and didn't realize the image function only imported into the ACT word processor. Luckily, your input worked. I copied my document over to ACT Word perfectly and the images are importing like a champ!  Thanks for your help.
