Data merge help

Feb 26, 2013 10:20 AM

I have my document open and a link to data merge two fields. From the Data Merge panel I can't select Preview nor apparently complete the data merge. What step am I missing?

    Did you add placeholders to the page?

    Have you read about Data Merge inthehelp files or watched any of the videos on Adobe TV? You need to do that.

    OK, that sounds like the placeholders are there. Is the correct source file selected inthe Data Merge panel? You should see a list with the field names. If not, openthe panel flyout menu, choose Select Data Source and open the correct file (you may need to do this, anyway, if you use a differnt file each year).

     

    On my way out the door for a couple of hours, so I won't be able to provide answers to more questions quite as fast. The Help files and videos really are pretty good, though.
