Merge columns, but not the rows
on Nov 27, 2010 at 4:40:32 pm

I'm using Indesign CS4.

I'm importing an excel spreadsheet into indesign to create tables.

The spread sheet uses about 20 columns and 40 rows. The first 4 columns have information that need to be combined into one column. How can I merge multiple columns without merging the rows? Can I do in InDesign? If not, how do I do it in excel 2004?

thanks,
Derrick

I know that it can be done in Excel. However, I do not know the exact process (don't have Excel in front of me here).

...something like...
highlight the cells you want to merge....somewhere in Excel "merge cells". I would do a help command and search "merge cells"
