Hello, i have a flyer wiht 16 different versions which i need to create again and again. I would need to mannualy update the images of each flyer. So i created a 16 page document and i am looking for a feuture to use my date merge on this 16 pages, in word there is a command next record which you can place on the next page. So i don;t like to use the create documents in the date merge window, i like to implement the data merge on the existing pages. 

Is that possible?

Thanks, 

Ronald

Hi Ronald, you can use data merge with images if you add a "@" at the beginning of the column name and put the path to your images in different rows. Then you need to create just one version and apply the different images via your csv/txt-file. See https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/data-merge.html Is that what you need?

Excell does not allow me to use @ in the cell, it thinks it is a formula. Any tips on that?

Oeps one problem left. Somehow there is a very thin line where the image is placed. The images are all psd files with transperency. On the edges of the image, on the export there is a small line. The psd files are clean.
You can see the line just above the head of the dj, cutting trough the logo. 

Is there someway i can crop this line out? In all 16 files the lines are there.......
