I created a file in excel with 966 rows all in column A. I saved it as a txt file and then created an Indesign document with 966 pages.
In the InDesign file I set up a text box with the font and size I wanted then centered it in the document. When I do the data merge in the master page in only shows the text from row 2 in every single text box in every page.
I've tried searching and tried other boxes and not doing master pages. Why cant I get my text to display in order in every page?
If I can email someone with screenshots or call someone for a step by step that would be very helpful.
Row 2 is selected because the first row should be used as a header which describes the content.
In terms of the merge itself, you do not need to create a 966 page document. Create a 1 page document with your field in place, then run the merge. InD will automatically create 966 pages, or as many as it takes to use all the data. If you want it all in the same document, I would not put the merge field on the master page, but on the document page instead.
