I am creating a Data Merge file to create a booklet of emergency contacts. The previous file was done in Publisher (YUCK) and needs to be redesigned. I am trying to set up the file properly in InDesign to perform a data merge in which there are 3 contacts per page (a primary, secondary and alternate for each county in NY). See Below
Currently, I cannot figure out how to get multiple contacts onto one page. The way it is set up now, I can only get one person's information to show up on each spread.
Any Ideas on how to help remedy?
You've got the same problem with which I tried to help in this thread: Repeating pages
As you've found InDesign's Data Merge really only merges one record to multiple sets of fields...OR, (what you want)...multiple records to one set of fields.
So what you need is just one set of fields; the first one. Do this:
And delete all but the first page.
Fantastic! There's still some cleaning up to do but that will save me a TON of time. Thank you so much!
