The catalog saga continues. Does anyone have an idea how to create a TOC using those convenient placeholders from Data Merge? To use the animal example again, I'd like the TOC to look like this:
Where Birds and Cats are animal types with their own placeholder <<Class>>
Eagles and Falcons are <<Order>>, and Bald, Golden, etc are <<Species>>.
The page numbers would be nice to have for the beginnings of each section, because its going to be saved as an interactive PDF so customers can jump to sections as they please.
Is this possible? I've made a beautiful catalog with ID and I really hope there's a way to index it like this....
I believe I've got it, by circumventing ID and building formulas into new fields in Excel. If anyone is curious:
Voila, a tiered TOC that builds itself from your data each time you update it and create a new merged document. All you have to do is set up the contents page each time you update.
A bit of work, but that's all I've been able to come up with so far.
