Data merge to a formatted table for multiple catalog listing on one page in a single table.
I'm revising on a 180 page catalog that was originally created page by page, row by row with InDesign. The process was incredibly tedious and the person doing it eventually quit due to all the stress that it caused her. I would like to revise this catalog using data merge from .csv files but as you can see from the attached file some actual layout capabilities are needed and not all tables are consistent. There are also some cells in tables that need to be merged because they contain duplicate information. So far InDesign as only been able to create multiple individual tables for each row in the .csv file. It would be very helpful if InDesign was capable of merging documents more sophisticated than business cards and mailing lablels.
