    Data merge question

    rbperma1

      I am trying to build a large product catalog using data merge. I want to have text input that is also a hyperlink to an order page on our website. How do I format the text in my CSV file so that it comes in with hyperlinks for each product?

          Hi,

          This feature is not yet present in InDesign. But there is an alternate way to solve the issue. Use data merge to merge the files and in csv/text files, place the url as plain text. After merging is complete, use the option convert urls to hyperlinks present under type (Type->hyperlinks and cross references->convert urls to hyperlinks). I hope this should solve your problem.

           

          Thanks-
