    data merge looks good in preview - merged document has errors


      Hi all,


      I create a catalogue for training courses based on an excel file with all the course data (one course data set per row) and then I use the data merge function to import it in indesign.


      Indesign generates then one page per course.


      This works fine now for several months. Today I made some adjustments (e.g. new fields, other sequence of fields) and suddenly some of the empty fields are not removed anymore. (the remove lines option is checked)


      In preview everything looks great with all empty fields removes. But as soon as I generate the merged document some of the emtpy fields stay as an additional line on the page.


      Any ideas what could cause this behaviour?


      Any help is much appreciated!
