How can we improve InDesign?

Data merge should include a "Next Record" feature

Data merge should include a "Next Record" feature, like Word has. I want to merge data into InDesign, but I don't want to duplicate text boxes or pages. I just want to put the placeholders wherever they need to go (like in a table) and merge the data without having a text box for every record.

        I just tried Data Merge for the first time today, trying to optimize the way my company updates its price lists. Man I got dissapointed finding out this feature wasn't implemented allready, and that plug-ins costs several thousand dollars!
