Hey there, I have a .csv for an illustrator data merge that has columns that contain both text and icon images (see below file for an example). The board game uses icons to replace certain text words. Is there a way in illustrator to combine both text and image within the same variable?

If it doesn't meet your needs, then it's necessary to dig into scripting:
