Data Merge - Comma error
on Apr 1, 2013 at 8:49:10 am

Data Merge works perfect in Indesign, but there is a little issue
when using commas in the Excel list.

My Column in Excel looks like this:

Guest
Jim
Kim, James and Oliver

Problem: When merging the .csv, "James and Oliver" is not included.
Does anyone know how to make the comma separation go all the way to Indesign?


Hoping for help!
Best, Anders

I believe that if you enclose the field in quotes, you should be ok:

field1_value,field2_value,"Kim, James and Oliver",field4, etc.
