Need a new page for each record in Xdata

Post by Anonymous » 16 Sep 2009, 02:14

I know this is something little that I am missing, but I am doing a merge for letters and can't get each letter with its variable data on its own page. The variable data is comprised oftext and images. How doI indicate in the template that I needa new page for each record (row in a .csv file)? Currently, it is all running in one text box and I am getting an error message that says "Your imported text overflowed its text chain. Unless you're doing something special, check to make sure that you're importing into the main text flow."
This is driving me crazy! Please help!

If you mean it is not jumping to the next text box, which is on the next page, at the end of the record, use the next box character (Shift + Enter) at the end of your statement (within the repeat loop). Look in the Index of the Xdata User's Guide under "new box character" and "new column character". Plus, make sure the links are set in your master pages, and the auto page insertion is turned on in your Print Layout preferences.
