Photoshop action
If i have a graphic created, say for example, a square, I would like to create a script that would read an external document that contains information like the following:

"123 Vernon Street"
"345 Exile Court
"3456 Yogurt Lane"
"44344 Respite Ave"
"21267 Gugenhiem Road"
.
.
.

and then takes that information and puts in onto the graphic in a formatted way (positioned onto the graphic centered, for example).

The external document may have between 25 - 100 different addresses. The graphic will only be able to hold a certain amount of addresses (x), so after the graphic is filled with that
number(x), another graphic would need to be created for the remaining addresses, and so on.

How does one accomplish this?

Yes, use variables. You can also dynamically flow in images. Do a help search in Photoshop

I did a tutorial in one of my books on it but don't have anything on the web
