Data Merge for Calendar

I have around 20 calendars with designs similar to the one I added in the image that need to be updated from 2024 to 2025. I am manually updating the dates one by one using the end nested style method. Is there a way to use data merge to change these calendars from the year 2024 to 2025, or do you know of a shorter method? 

Thank you so much.

If those TFs for days are linked - you could just place a new contents - best would be to use InDesign Tagged Text format.

 

But if they are separated and without any kind of labels to identify them - you would need to start from scratch... unless... can you share your document?

As you are using Tables - so the only option is to replace contents of those tables... Much quicker than writing script.

 

You can use any website for days:

Then copy&paste month by month - but for some reason you have local Numbering turned on:

 ... so you would need to turn it off:

Entering dates manually into the calendar doesn't take too much of your time, I think. ( :

What is your source and in what format? If it is a spreadsheet you could place as tables and keep the link to the spreadsheet.

Hello, sorry but I do not understand what you mean by format. I am using tables for dates.

Sorry. I wasn't clear in my question. As you have planned to use Data Merge, you must have a source document to data-merge from. What is the source document?
