I would like to simplify the creation of our sale flyer by creating a data merge document. However, I never know how many sale items will be in each department and I need to be able to offset the columns to wrap around objects. Also, some have images while others don't. Does anyone know how this could be done? I would like to set it up so that our end user, who knows minimal things about inDesign, could populate the flyer, move a few things around and print. Here is what it would look like. Thanks for your help.
Data Merge really isn't the right approach for this. You'd do better to place the text files.
