I am producing an 84pp catalogue for multiple brands.
I have it set up as:
Now, my problem is I have to change the footer text and references depending on the brand, so I can have the footers saying 'Call Brand A on 123 4567' or 'Call Brand B on 567 1234' and have various in-text references change from Brand A to Brand B and vice versa.
I have a data merge on each of the masters in my .indd style source looking at a simple .csv of:
|Brand Name||URL||Phone Number|
|Brand A||www.branda.com||0800 123 4567|
|Brand B||www.brandb.com||0800 567 1234|
This works fine on the masters within the source .indd.
But, when I close this master style source and go into another .indd document within the book (after synchronising) I see the <<Brand Name>> container but, when I export the documents it does not populate the book with the data - it keeps the containers.
Obviously with a normal in-document Data Merge you'd click 'Create Merged Document' but I don't want to export each page, and I have PDF print presets / .joboptions file with settings for the book.
Any advice on how to get this to work?
I'm not really following the workflow here, but this seems like it might be better suited to Conditional Text than to Data Merge.
