Hi everybody

 

I try to find the way to arrange the multiple records of my data, not by rows first or ligns first, but by 

"a vertical way".

The result is that the second record is on the second page and depends on the number of instances of the page.

Please look at my example "DV.pdf".

I throw a bottle into the sea because i didn't find any solution on the web.

Thank you for answer me.

Alexandre

It's not clear what kind of "data" you're referring to, and how you want to import it.

Either way, if possible, it will require a custom-made script.

What software do you use to generate the PDF and what process do you use to merge the data?

Certainly, I've forgotten to tell you that I generate my pdf by Indesign CC and my database is a .CSV imported in Indesign.

So if the data is already imported then I'm not sure what those number represent... Are those PDF pages that you want to sort and combine? It might be easier if you could share a sample file with us.

The data is almost simple :

NUM

1

2

3

...

and every record should be imposed on the page layout with 8 instances.
