    Resizing text to frame in data merge

    kikidotca

      Hi all,

       

      I've been asked to automate the layout and printing of thousands of degree certificates and I've used a data merge from an excel spreadsheet to insert the data into my InDesign CS6 document. Everything works great except in the case of degree names which are very long.

       

      Is there a way for the text size to be automatically reduced to fit on a single line within a particular size frame? I don't want the frame to be resized to fit the text. I want the text to resize to fit the frame.

       

      Help! I'm pulling my hair out.

       

      Tx,

       

      Chris
