In Steps 2 and 3 of the Mail and Catalog Merge Wizard, you connect your template to your data source, and then insert and arrange merge fields within the catalog merge area.
Step 2: Select a data source
In Step 2 of the Mail and Catalog Merge Wizard, you are prompted to locate and connect to the data source that you want to use for your catalog merge project.
Step 3: Create your catalog merge template
After you connect to the data source, you can insert and arrange merge fields within the catalog merge area. The merge fields that correspond to the data fields in your data source are displayed in a list box in Step 3 of the Mail and Catalog Merge Wizard.
To insert a merge field, point to the field that you want to insert, click the arrow that appears on the right, and then click Insert as Text or Insert as Picture. Publisher places the merge fields within either a text box or a picture frame, depending upon the type of merge field that you insert.
After you finish inserting merge fields as placeholders for the information that you want to display in your catalog, you can finish the design of your catalog merge template by arranging and formatting these merge fields.
