After trying many other heavyweight software, I was surprised to find this software that fits our purpose very well. Kudos for that.
I've a small but important issue. The excel sheet I use also has Photo field. This field is encoded in Base64. It keeps throwing error. Is it not supported? Would you be kind enough to add this feature? We have done all the testing and exhausted ourselves. Just for this issue, we don't want to go hunt again.

CR8 Card Printing Software supports two types of image storage:
1. A simple text field that contains the name and (optional) path to an image file that is stored on the local computer. This is supported for all database types. 2. Images stored as a binary image data (BLOB). This is supported in MS Access, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL etc (but not Excel or Text database types).
There are no plans to support images stored as Base64 in text fields - this is the only time I have had a request for this. It would also be a non-trivial upgrade because CR8 Card Printing Software only supports text fields of up to 255 characters - which would not be big enough for image files.
Maybe you could explore a method to extract and decode the images locally, before printing cards?
