    Indesign CS6 data merge not positioning correctly on the page.

      I'm using Indesign cs6 ... I've been working in indesign since cs.  I've done many complicated data merges in 5.5 and before but now in CS6 when I do to create the merged pages it centers my first one and throws the rest off the page.  I'm talking about multi-images to a page.  Single to a page works great.

      Also, I was working in windows xp and now I'm on a Windows 7 machine.  Not sure if that makes a difference but thought it was worth mentioning.

      I have tried all the settings within the data merge windows.

      I have tried placing it on the page in different places but when it merges it's always in the center (the first item). 

      I've looked for fixes, plug-in, patches online and found nothing that will help.

      I have run out of things to try and finding no help or fixes on the adobe website.

      I have a job with 1200 pieces (4 up) coming up soon and I don't want to have to correct each page individually.

      Thanks in advance
