I data merged an excel sheet into my indesign file. No background or images in file. Now the indesign file is 746MB! Shouldn't be more than a 1 mb I would think. Any suggestions of how I can make that smaller?

It is a vague question. Is there more information? It is the merged record that you consider too large? How many records? Do you have inmages and/or QR codes? Do you need to save the merged file? I usually never save the mreged file since I can generate it on demand. so I seldom measire size of my files. You are sure it's not 746KB?

What happens when you save that file as IDML, open that and save it again as INDD?
