    importing excel spreadsheet using nested styles

    rizzledon

      I'm trying to import a large excel spreadsheet into indesign. The pages all have the same 2 column layout. Each column needs to have a 3 sets of headlines and body e.g

       

      HEADLINE1

       

      body1

       

       

      HEADLINE2

       

      body2

       

       

      HEADLINE3

       

      body3

       

      I've imported the excel file which is just two columns (headline & body) with a nested charactor style for both but I can't figure out how to get the body onto a new line with appropriate leading.

      I need the headlines and first lines of the body to line up in the pages left and right column.

       

      Anyone able to offer any advice?
