  • InDesign CS4 Data merge issue

    When I merge, (having checked the 'remove blank fields' option), gaps still appear where the fields are blank. Having googled it, I've discovered other people have had the same problem, and it appears to happen wherever there are two blank fields in a row. There's no way I can rearrange the data (it's an address) to ensure two blank fields aren't together.

    Having said this, has anyone had the same problem, and is there a workaround for it? Or any ideas to try?

    Cheers

    I don't do data mergers at all but this video is good but it's CS3 - still might help though

    And the guy will answer any questions if you leave a comment. I think.

      Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

      You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

      I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

      Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

      No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...
