I'm creating a catalogue and I was wondering if there's an easier way to automate the entire catalogue from an excel sheet.
I've done data merge to create single page documents, but I was wondering if there was a way to merge with multiple data on one single page.
In the example the Style Group would be the title, '12345' would be the SKU number and the descriptions.
I been using data merge for years. But yet to find a good solution to multiple data into one document. INDD has multiple data merge option but it does not work well in positioning them in "table" type format. And if there are any other objects in the document it does not work.
What I do is create a Interim merge data INDD document. This document has "only" data and one block of field - Name, Address phone, fax, etc. INDD will populate the data in table format - each data group is individual text object "paragraph". and depending on how you set the margin... it does pretty good job of placing them on a "matrix". I take that merged data area into the document that I need.
If anyone has better method..I am all ears. Thanks
