I've tried to create a data merge document but When I try to view appear a msg:

 

"It is not possible to find at least one placeholder for data in the data source. Verify all field placeholders in the data source"

 

I Tried with a simple archive and the same msg.

Thanks

If i understand the message you are seeing, it means that you have a placeholder in your InDesign document that does not exist in your CSV file.

It's hard to tell from just a screen shot - if you could share your actual csv file (with maybe a line or two of data in it) and the InDesign file, it would be easier to troubleshoot this.

Off course, see attatched. 

 

The problem occur when a put on reference in layout and try to preview or generate a document.
