Mail Merge using InDesign
on Feb 1, 2010 at 8:22:19 pm

I am trying to do a mail merge for a postcard that is 6 x 4.25 and I want to print these 4 up on an 11 x 17. How do I do the merge and get 4 different addresses to print on that sheet. When I do the multiples, I get the same name 4 up. Any ideas or suggestions?

It starts with the formatting of your source data. If you need it four-up, you need your data the same way.

Column 1 - Name Column 2 - Street Column 3 - City/State Column 4 - Zip Column 5 - Name(2) Column 6 - Street(2), etc.....

So if you do four-up on a sheet, you'll need four sets of data going across in your columns.

ps-None of my comments are meant to be gospel. Otherwise, I would write a book that provided all the cold, hard, fast answers that everyone assumes are out there. These are the things that I have found to work well with my shooting habits and workflow. Always try things out for yourself and deduce the best workflow for you.
