Hi all, hope someone can help!

I've working with a 15 page InDesign doc that has vairable data throughout, that i'm pulling in from a spreadsheet using the data merge - all seems to work fine on preview. There are 25 versions of the same document within the spreadsheet so when i generate the merged document or export to PDF it creates Version 1 perfectly, but from that it seems to scale the text frames for the proceeding versions, bringing them in from the margin and obviously knocking out the data out through the document. Its absolutely fine, if you export them one at a time, but not if you export them to one doc. I cant seem to find anything on the master pages or set up to cause this. any and all suggestions welcome 🙂

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Can you share the InDesign file with the data? I do not need the current text and data, it may be dummy, but you need to make sure that the phenomena you describe is happening. It would also be fine to know your InDesign version and the platform.
