Dynamic Data Fields

Types of Dynamic Data Fields

Dynamic data fields are textual objects whose content is inserted and modified automatically. Most of the data fields update the content when you print multiple copies of the same document.

Type Data source
Address Field Personal details imported from Contacts or Address Book. The data fields are populated at printing. The contacts from which the address is taken can be selected in the Print dialog.
File Data Data imported from a text file. Each copy printed will import a new line of text.
Counter Counter that increments automatically according to a pattern. Each printed copy will have a unique number.
Page Number Generated automatically.
Date and Time Generated automatically.

Address Field, File Data, and Counter are populated with a new value in every successive copy of the document at printing. The Quantity field in the Print dialog must be set to 2 or a greater value.
