Ok, I have followed the datamerge directions (created a document, created a data file, saved data file in both csv and txt formats) connected to the data source and when I try to drag the data fields into my document, nothing. The fields can't be selected (they show up in the datamerge pannel just fine), but nothing I try will get the fields to insert as data placeholders. Been reading through the forums and it seems like I am following the correct steps, but not sure if it is a ID10T error, PEBCAK or what.
Any help for a "new to data-merger" user???
You need a text frame to put them in.... (or an image frame if you are merging images).
First, many thanks! I have seen you name on the forums before, and your response helped me figure out the problem.
I set personalization back down to 100% (normal) and everything worked fine! Had you not made your suggestion, I would not have checked, not discovered the issue and would at this moment be watching my PC soar like an eagle out the 5th floor window.
