Guys,

 

Indesign is not respecting the layout limits according to the spreadsheet, it is throwing data that has not been linked in a new layout page thus keeping the data sequentially without respecting their respective espaços. I've tried to change ";" by "," inside the spreadsheet but it's no work.

 

Can anyoney can help me please?

 

Thank you

You probably have text content containing csv delimiters in your data. Then InDesign thinks its a new entry while its the middle of a sentence for example. Try to open the csv in Excel to see if data rows are interpreted correctly.

I don't want to download images from the forum to view them - please embed them in your post. 

In the meantime, try saving your data as tab-delimted instead of CSV
