CSV data into pdf
« on: March 07, 2013, 03:29:53 pm »
I've tried to follow these steps, as the tutorial that I found online (
- create through Scribus a text-frame with this text : %VAR_namevariable% (where namevariable is the name of the column data in the csv file)
- run script
- set the parameters (name of .sla file, CSV data source, output direcory, etc.)
- click on generate

When I click on generate, appears this output (attached).

How can I resolve this problem?
