Default Mail Merge with pictures

I have followed all of the helps online for mail merge pictures to a doc, but can't seem to get this to work.



I've used the attach as the link to the file, but all I get is the outline of the picture with a Red "X" in the upper left corner.

The {} were all applied with Ctrl + F9

What am I missing?

That suggests any one or more of:
• the picture named in the mergefield doesn't exist;
• the jpg extension is wrong;
• the path is wrong;
• the mergefield already has the extension

Thanks Paul. I got it all worked out now. I ended up using Ctrl + F9 and typing the rest out by hand.
