    Numbering tickets with table and seat numbers

    Emily Simmons

      I'm doing tickets for a dinner event and the client requested that we number tickets by table. We have tables 1-18, with seats 1-6 at each table. Also, the fields have to appear twice -- at the top of the ticket, and on the bottom tear-away portion. Is there a way I can automate those fields so I don't have to create them all by hand?

       

      Here is the ticket layout:

      I figured it was something to do with an Excel merge, so I have an Excel file with two columns: table numbers and seat numbers. But now I'm stuck. All the sequential numbering discussions I've seen have been one field per ticket. I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this out!

       

      I'm in InDesign CS6 on Windows 8.

       

      Thanks!
