Hallo zusammen,

 

habe eine CSV-Tabelle mit 3 Spalten/250 Zeilen,

Möchte nun auf jeder die Spalten einer Zeile abtragen. Allerdings gibt es ein Designunterschied für gerade/ungerade Seiten (gespiegeltes Design). Wenn ich die Daten in der Musterseite sowohl auf der geraden, als auch auf der ungeraden Seite anlege und anschließend das zusammengeführte Dokument erstelle, wird pro Datensatz eine Doppelseite erzeugt, der rechts und links den gleichen Datensatz zeigt.

 

Wo liegt mein Denkfehler?

 

Gruß

Jens

A mirrored design is outside the simple capabilities of the basic built-in data merge. Depending on the specifics of your layout, you may be able to cheat your way around this by using inline frames (with the frame set to align toward or away from the spine within text frames that span the full width margin-to-margin).

Can you provide a screen grab of what you want the design to look like?

Hey, thanks for your answer. I posted the screenshots just to give you a little example.

That's because both text fields are placing the same data. Unlike Microsoft Word's mail merge, InDesign doesn't have a "next record" field that can identify that it's placed record one on the left page, and record two goes on the right page - it will literally put record one on both left and right pages.

You would have to make one page with the records where you want and then merge to a new ID file and post-process them to appear as you want, but items such as object styles can help a lot here.
