    How can I do a multiple record data merge, but specify that a specific text frame with variable data only merges on the first record?

      I'm doing a multiple record data merge, I have 2 frames both with variable data placed inside.

      I would like to specify that one of the text frames only merges once(first record) and the other frame multiple times for each record in the data file.

       

      Is it possible?

      I thought that perhaps if I place the text frame that must merge once on the master page, it would work.  But you are not allowed to place variable text on the master and on the document page.

       

      I'm going to try it through scripting next, but thought that perhaps there is an easier way that I'm not aware of.

       

      Thanks,
