    InDesign lacks for data merge features for years (unfortunately). Please Adobe - have a look on MyDataMerge on mac. This is how data merge should work.

    XLSX support would be a great thing. XLS is from 2011 (or older) so not strongly required.

    All of our clients submit their data via Excel. And it's every time a start from the scratch.

    Meanwhile we use Mydatamerge (https://mydatamerge.com) which claims itself to be the missing interface for Indesigns data merge.
    And it does a perfect job. We can just swap excel files while keeping all of our configurations. New client data -> two clicks... merge. Have a look Adobe - that's how modern data merge interface looks like.

    One thing MyDataMerge already does would be great also: Please support sheet selection and keeping linebreaks from within cells!
