I was sent a letter and data merge of a letter constructed in Word taddressed to 1000+ parents in our school district. They asked to have that letter placed on the district letterhead that was constructed in InDesign CS 5.5.
I set up that number of pages in InDesign, placed the letterhead on the master page, but cannot get the Word doc to flow into InDesign so that the pages match on both documents. Any suggestions?
If you are looking for an exact match in appearance between the Word doc and the ID doc, I'd recommend printing the Word file to PDF (or postscript file and distill), then place the PDF into a new ID file. I recommend using Scott Zanelli's script to do the PDF import: InDesignSecrets » Blog Archive » Zanelli Releases MultiPageImporter for Importing both PDF and INDD Files
