Hi all!

I´m working in an Agenda.This document has a page per day. 

I need to include in a corner a little calendar of the current month, and I am pasting this manually in each sheet.

This calendar was made with a table into a frame text.

I have these 12 calendar to include in the document.

Is it possible to use the Data merge funtion (as we use in photographs) to do this?

Below is the picture of my document

Thanks a lot for your help!

Not entirely sure what you're trying to achieve here. 

 

The best bet would be to have 12 master pages, one for each month. 

And apply those master pages to the pages in the document. 

 

January master pages for first 31 pages 

February master pages for 28 pages etc.

 

You can select 31 pages and choose from the Pages Panel to apply master pages. 

 

And finally - have A-Master page

Base the months pages on the A-Master

That way - you can control the overall page designs on 1 page - and just add the calendar for the individual month pages.
