Right now, I have my text block with my data fields entered on my master page. The text block has been set to allow master item overrides, as recommended in the Adobe data merge tutorial for CS 5 & 5.5. When I preview my data merge, it looks perfect.
The problem is that once I tell it to merge, it repeats the first entry on all the pages instead of going down the records in my .csv file. I checked the .csv file in TextEdit, and it doesn't seem to have any errors.
Has anyone else had this problem and managed to figure it out?
Thanks in advance for your help!
We've seen quite a few reports of issues when you preview before running the merge in CS5 and 5.5. Try a leap of faith and DON'T preview and see what you get.
Thanks for the suggestion — I tried it without the preview and it worked! And I also figured out I only need one page in the document — otherwise it will create extra copies for each entry (I had 12 pages, so it made 12 copies for each record).
