I am trying to mail merge info from an excel into a preset 3 page InDesign document.
Page 1 - Cover Page
Page 2 - Statement of attainment
Page 3 - Achievements
When I click preview, it works for the first person (Note: I have 110 separate students that require the 3 page document) but with the second student (and every student after), the merge fields don't seen to work.. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can merge this and set the presents so it recognises that the document is 3 pages?
If you have applied the placeholders on the regular pages and not the master pages, it should work fine in this particular instance.
Instead of using the preview dialog box - you go "create merged document" or "export to PDF" from the data merge panel and choose a record that isn't record 1 but could be record 4, records 7-8... what happens?
Without more information, it is difficult to tell. Are the placeholders large enough to handle the incoming text? What is the data like? Were there soft-returns in the excel file that haven't translated across to the text/csv file being used for Data Merge?
