Hello, I would like some help with Data merging CSV files. I have a label set up to a csv file in which it populate each label with seperate information, which is correct. I would like to be able to import an order number that would show up on the parent page for each page. I am able to make the file name show up on every page and page number, is there a way I can import an order number into the parent page? It does not allow me to use data merge on both the parent and the child pages.

A couple workarounds: 

1) Just input the Order ID as a Text Variablee after the merge is complete, and use Text Variable on your parent pages. 

2) Input the Order ID as a non-printing text object during the merge, with its own Paragraph Style, and have the Text Variable pick up that style.
