Importing from Excel to InDesign

Hi Everyone,

I want to design and print envelopes at home for client greeting cards and I feel like there must be a way to import data from a spreadsheet into text fields in InDesign. Maybe a GREP function?

I’ve found lots on important a spreadsheet to a table in InDesign – but I want to be able to quickly and easily make pages of envelopes with different names and addresses…

If anyone has had any success at this I would love to hear.


InDesign Data Marge is your friend. This video shows how to deal with data merge for business cards, but the concept is the same.

Thank you! I knew there was something but didn’t even know what to search to find it.

Much appreciated!
