Hi, I need to create a mail merge file with an existing PDF file. Originally it was designed in Indesign. The mail merge plugins and videos have been for PCs. Can anyone recommend a good reliable place to get such a plugin? Or is there another way for me to make this work?  Thanks! David in Austin.

Do the mail merge in InDesign.

Then export to PDF (or multiple PDFs) and print the individual documents.

Is that possible without being labor intensive? How does that work, what is the process?

Thanks!

Not sure what's your definition of "labor intensive", exactly, but I've developed a (paid-for) tool that allows you to generate hundreds of merged files with just a couple of clicks. You can find it here: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Acrobat -- Mail Merge and Email PDF Files

I have the same problem. In Word for Windows, there is a component from Adobe that allows us to mail merge a document with data from a spreadsheet and then it automatically generates individual PDFs and sends them to the recipients. Why it is not present in the Word for MAC version?

I don't have an answer to that, but my script works on all platforms.
