    Word 2003 - Picture Placeholder in Word

    Each month, I change a picture in a Word 2003 table and insert text. The layout is the same every month. Is there a way to put a placeholder in a cell so that all I have to do is replace the picture and whatever picture (size, format, etc.) I put there will automatically fit in the placeholder?

    Hi dfriloux,

    You can use an INCLUDEPICTURE field for this (see Word's Help file for details). Simply give your variable image a generic name and point the INCLUDEPICTURE field to it. Then whenever you want to update the picture, simply copy the update over the generically-named one and, next time you open the document, the image should update.
    Cheers,
