    Is text the only thing that can be changed using data merge?


      I just don't use the data merge in Indesign often enough to know the answer to this so here I am.


      We have a client who wants us to set up a table in a document. They are using this document to track grades/performance.

      What they want is to set up an excel doc with their data BUT on the table we merge it with, they want the actual cell of the table to change color rather than have data inserted into it. 


      For example:


      Grade 1
      Grade 2
      Grade 3
      Grade 5
      Company A

      Company B

      Company C

      Company D

      Company E


      Is there a way to do this or are we looking at researching other options?


      Thanks in advance!
