I am attempting to do a mail merge with the Mail Merge Plugin.  I can get it to run but it won't read multiple lines in excel.  It is only printing the same info on one page.  How do I get it to read multiple lines.

I feel like I'm missing something.

Ok, that is a plugin FOR Acrobat but like most Acrobat plugins it’s made by someone completely different. (That’s the main idea of plugins). Adobe probably have no knowledge of it, and even if they heard of it, they can’t support it. So you need to ask the makers, someone called Evermap. Good luck!

So this is a merge, in Word, using the mail merge to PDF function provided by Acrobat DC? Or something else?

Adobe does not directly offer any such mail merge plugin for Acrobat. Acrobat's PDFMaker does support mail merge from Word, but there is no mail merge supporting only a PDF file and external data as part of Acrobat.

I believe you can find third party scripts and plugins that do provide such support, but not from Adobe itself.

Did you ever find your answer? I know this is an old thread. I use this software and the developer was very helpful in getting me started with it. I'm doing some fairly advanced merges on an Excel document. AutoMailMerge is an amazing plugin. I couldn't find anything else out there that does what it does, ie; allow me to create and run an SQL query on an Excel document. Pretty awesome. I have 170 PDFs and a mailing list of 213 subscribers. I needed to automatically print the publications with the addresses already on them. This turned out to be a much more complicated than I thought it should be but setting up mapping and actions with AutoMailMerge made it painless. I'm probably going to buy AutoBatch too so I can run the whole thing at once instead of running one action at a time. Well worth $150-350.

Evermap is an Adobe Partner. 

 

That is probably where the confusion stemmed from

Instead of purchasing and downloading and installing scripts or plug-ins, the BEST solution I found was simply using Adobe InDesign. I had hundreds of names I needed to import from an Excel spreadsheet onto an award certificate made in Word and later converted to PDF. It was messy doing it in Word because Word isn't much of a designer's tool as you know. It was a mess in Acrobat because Acrobat doesn't have a native plugin to do it smoothly. I found out InDesign does AND is a designer's tool. I imported my PDF design into InDesign without much issue at all and followed these instructions and it works great!

 

Easy to follow instructions here:

This video is great too in explaining more of the process:

Hello,

 

I need to send the merged documents to the email addresses that are merged into the PDFs. Will InDesign do this?

I was able to use word to create the merged documents from excel, save it as a PDF and then split that into individual files. But I have 75 individual files and I'm looking for a way to automate the generation of individual emails to each recipient with their unique PDF certificate.

I purchased the EverMap AutoMailMerge, the problem is that the PlugIns option doesn't show up in the upper left in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro and I can't proceed without that.

My (paid-for) Mail Merge script allows you to automatically send an email with the merged file attached to it to each recipient, if there's a field that contains the email address in the merged data, of course.
