How do "data merge" and "tagged text" work together in InDesign?

Hello, I'm new to InDesign and I'm trying to do a data merge from a CSV that has Tagged Text.


When I do the data merge, however, I just get the code itself and not the result of the code, if that makes sense.


Is this possible?

    I don't thing ID can interpret tags during a data merge -- it expects either plain text or an image path.


    You could use Find/Change after the merge, however, to lovate the tags, add the style, and remove the tags. This could be very simple, or extremly difficult, depending onthe number of styles and wheter character styles or local formatting are used outside the paragraph styles.
