    Getting Data Merge to work with Arabic text

    Robert Hempsall Level 1

      I need to make use of the Data Merge tool for a project I am working on, but it involves creating documents in English and Arabic. I have created a CSV file (with Excel and OpenOffice) with English and Arabic text in it, but when I use it as the Data Source, the English is fine, but the Arabic comes through as either lines, question marks or very arbitrary characters. I have UK InDesign CS6 and also a trial of InDesign ME CS6, but neither seem to work. Any help would be massively appreciated.
