    Indesign: Data Merge: Link to Artboard number

    Llewellyn_C

      This has been asked before (in 2012) but to my knowledge has not been answered.

       

      I use Data merge for a catalogue. Each product has a number of icons. I would like to have those icons on the one AI file on separate art boards and link accordingly.

       

      When you link an AI manually, you can specify a page or an art board in the Import Options dialogue box.

       

      So, can this be specified in the CSV for Data merge?

       

      I have tried "path/file name.ai:3" but the path is not recognized. It links to page one if there is no":3".

       

      For now I will split the AI file which is okay but a fix would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks
