How can I make a bulleted list with the merge data function?

The data file most likely contains all bullet items, separated by returns, in one cell. The multiple returns will create unwanted new records.

A workaround in the data file is to replace returns with a unique character. Perform the data merge, and in new ID document,  search for the unique character, and replace with actual return.

You would need to have a paragraph style with the bullet list already applied to the Data Merge insertion. 

It should work.
