Hi Bénédicte,

unfortunately this is not possible.

With Data Merge you cannot pick pages from PDF documents with multiple pages.

Always page 1 is used.

 

You may already find a feature request at InDesign UserVoice; support it!

Or write your own.

Found this feature request:

 

Data Merge - Pdf:{page number}

While performing a data merge, it would be nice to be able to include in my csv filename.pdf:{page number} (ie myfile.pdf:3) And have Indesign return the mentioned page in an image. Currently if I link a multi-page pdf, it will only show the first page.

Currently I have to break apart a pdf into individual pages to use as images in a data merge.
