    Help with merging from Excel

    narwhalsandwich Level 1

      Hello!

       

      I am not all that experienced with InDesign, but I am trying to figure something out that I hope will save me time and labels in the long run. I know this question has also been asked a lot, but I have so far been unable to find exactly what I am looking for.

       

      I have created an invitation to send to our members. There are two per page (8.5" x 11") in order to save paper. It is double-sided, and they are stacked on top of each other, with the sheet oriented vertically. Is it possible to merge data into BOTH of these invites? I have gone through all the data merge steps--saving the Excel file as .txt and then choosing fields and doing the data merge in the document, but it only seems to work on the top invite, creating twice as many invites as I need.

       

      Any tips? Again, I apologize if this has already been answered elsewhere.
