    Data Merge problem

    palmstead

      I am working with Indesign for the first time (trial offer).  I need an application that works with a data merge option. My computers are iPad2 and IMac.  My database applicatioin is HANDBASE on the iPad2.  I emailed a copy of the database via tepmtfile.csv.  I opened it up (through Windows > Utilities > data merge) the first time and it worked.  I sent the whole database and decided to filter the database in HANDBASE to s smaller number of records.  After attempting to merge, Indesign says that the file tempfile.csv either has no records or is not a supported file format.  I open the tempfile.csv in Numbers (apple spread sheet) and it opens fine.  I have tried copying another version of the tempfile.csv with and without the filtering. I get the same result.  Is this a Problem with the trial offer, InDesign or what?  any suggestions?  

       

      If I can solve this, I will purchase (the monthly service on an annual contract) of this program.
