    I have a unique problem. I am trying to use the INCLUDEPICTURE field code. The document I'm using is linked to a very sophisticated database software program and I have received instructions on merging data from this database INTO the INCLUDEPICTURE field to create the filename for the photo files. An example is typed below:

    {INCLUDEPICTURE "G:\\START\\IMAGES\\PHOTOS\\{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_LAST_NAME"}_{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_FIRST_NAME"}.GIF"}

    In the above example, the photo filenames are all matched up to the fields referenced in the formula (last_first.gif). These are the correct field codes, and the double slashes are important, I have been told.

    My problem is that as soon as I save the document containing the above field, the underscores all change to "%20" and the field doesn't work!! No one at my software vendor's help desk can help me with this problem. Does anyone know anything about preventing this??

    Thank you!

    Cheryl
