    Dynamic data in header on each page.

    brspaul

      So, I would LIKE to put a text frame in a master page, which contains dynamic data (various methods have been tried, XML, Data Merge, Place TXT file) and this frame will load a different line (paragraph, xml node, row) on each page that uses the master template...

       

      I dont think ID (CS5.5) can do this...

       

      Basically I want to show testimonials on each page of a brochure, but load them from an external source so that they dont need to be type in on every page - and can be updated very easilly...

       

      Ideas?

       

      I tried putting a frame on a master page, set the options to only show a single paragraph and to show the next paragraph on the next frame... but every frame on child page, starts with the first row of data...

       

      Im going grey here.
