    How do I insert a CSV file that has blank fields? (Some  fields need to be blank) CS4

    pik80 Level 1

      Hi, this is the first time I have done a data merge in InDesign. I am trying to insert an address list that often has blank fields in it. The fields are blank since some fields are not relevent to some people (i.e. some of the people don't have cell phones others don't have email addresses) Therefore these people would obviously leave those field blank. The trouble is when I go to do a data merge I am told that the CSV file won't import because some fields are blank. I don't know why InDesign is telling me this, or course some fields are blank they are not relevent to that person. Can someone please tell me how I can get around this problem?
