CorelDRAW X5 :: Save A Print Merge File With Merge Data Field

Feb 26, 2013

Why cant I save a cdr job with all the merge fields setup so that next time I open the file I can go straight to 'merge to new document'.

So Ive set up a 10 to view raffle tickets job.  Inserted 20 numerical merge fields, positioned, resized, applied font size color alignment etc etc etc.. Takes ages.....  So then merge to a new document, works nice and I can save it fine. 

There are a hundred reasons why i may have to close the 'master' merge file before the job has been successfully printed.  It may be a repeat print job.

Any which way I really dont get why the live merge data  fields are lost on closing the file.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Print Merge NOT Recognizing Numeric Field From Excel File

Jun 1, 2012

I am having an issue with X6's print merge not recognizing a properly formatted numeric filed from my Excel spreadsheet.  My first issue was that Corel was adding a decimal point after my numbers. This was when they were still formatted as text fields.  (which i still don't understand why, since they were just TEXT fileds) 

I know that the fields need to be "numeric" fields. 

FYI i have ALREADY COMPLETED MY TASK by using an "added" numeric filed that i added IN CorelDraw and then used the "Numeric Field Options" at the bottom of the page to get my number sequence.

However, that is not my question.... my question is: How do i get corel to RECOGNIZE a numeric field AS a numeric field in the first place.

InDesign :: Data Merge / Import Through CSV File

Mar 12, 2014

First i got a big Adobe InDesign File where I already have designed a catalog. It's made through tables.
It looks like this:
So here's my problem. The article numbers are already filled in. And I have a .csv file with 3 different colums. Art.Number, StandardPrice, DaliPrice It looks like this:
So now i want to import only the prices from this file, because the article numbers are already filled in. If i try to import the .csv file through data merge --> create merged document i am not able to choose this field which i marked blue (dataset). I don't know why... maybe i have to format my csv file different?
And also if i try to show the preview it only takes the data from the first line in my csv file. So somehow i have to merge the fields from the csv file with the article number which is already in my indesign file.
All those fields who look like this------>

are from an plugin which is calls easy catalog... but i think i won't need this plugin... i am sure it's also possible with data merge.

CorelDRAW X6 :: Text (kerning) With Print Merge?

Oct 8, 2013

I have variable text that I need to print using the Print Merge in CDX6. One field of text requires that the "kerning" be set at +30. No problem in my template. However, after I have create the print merge to a new file, the kerning is gone.

What I am missing that will force the text "kerning" or spacing as in the original?

CorelDRAW X5 :: Print Merge With Excel Database

Apr 17, 2011

A1 field name  is FIRST NAME  B1 is LAST NAME   C1 is ADDRESS    D1 is CITY    E1 is STATE

F1  is ZIP   H1 is name1   I1 is name 2       Fields H1 & I1 could not be inserted.

I entered the above field labels and loaded them with the saved Excel file saved as a CSV (Comma Delimited)

When the First names and last names appear in a document there is too big of a space between the first and last names. The same problem happens when I put city, state, and zip on the same line

in the document.

I  did a concatenate combining A1 &B1  to eliminate the space problem and a concatenate to combine D!, E1, and f1 Fields on one line.     I put the results of the concatenates in seperate columns  H1 & I1 but these 2 column fields could not be inserted for the print merge.

How i can solve the space problem between first and last names and the problem to put city, state and zip on the same line with proper space and punctuation.

CorelDRAW X6 :: Print Merge Booklet 8 Pages?

I have a problem printing a merge booklet 8 pages. I am printing to a booklet printer. The printer folds and staples the booklet. When I merges the print I cannot “group” the pages to 8. The printer collates all the pages and make one booklet. How do I group the booklet one by one to several booklets of 8 pages. Windows 7 - 64 bit.

CorelDRAW X3 :: Print Merge And Number Formatting

Aug 2, 2011

I am using Corel Draw X3 to create name tags that have room numbers printed on them so people know where they need to go.  I am importing an Excel spreadsheet for the data.  When it does the print merge it is adding a decimal at the end of the room number.  For example, instead of showing room 215, it outputs 215.0 instead.  How can I keep this from happening?  I've tried everything I can think of in Corel and Excel both.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: 64 Bit Print Merge

Jun 22, 2013

I have to make print merge firelds in CDX6.

The problem is that I have not Excel on my PC. Only Open office. I create a csv file but Open Office asks me every time what the Field and Text delimiter have to be - for the Field "," ";" ":" "tab" or "space" and for the Text " or '. After that it asks me to check or not few check boxes. See the picture below.

I tryed few combinations but the same result - Failed to save print merge data!

I dont know what to chek but the biggest problem is that I tryed to save a txt tab delimited on other computer with excel and when I try to print merge after loading the txt file Corel says Failed to save print merge data.

I saw that we can Print merge directly from xls files but I cant find that option in ODCB Data Source. Weird! because I have to do 1100 badjes with different merge fields like country, name, code etc... and if I start to make them by hand it will be forever!

CorelDRAW X4 :: Base Print Merge Method

May 16, 2012

First, I know how to use the base-print merge functions. Right now I have a job to complete with 1000 numbered 3part NCR forms.

I have never attempted this method (print merge), mainly due to my prior equipment limitations; however I am looking at realistically being able to print 100k+ page jobs without going to press/numbering machine (if only I could land about 10x 100k+ page jobs a month--press or no press--). Anyways, when I create this print merged file it takes easily 15 minutes to save (which might be understandable due to the number of pages to generate). BUT when I go to print, Draw closes. No error. No nothing.

When I use the print function in the print merge options, things lag extraordinarily. Also, I have to click on the various options many times for them to be registered. This option is like the prior--causing extremely unstable environments.

Auto numbering is a potential blessing, but this just isn't working for me. Also, is this a known issue? An upgrade to X6 might be prudent anyways; however, X4 is working fine for everything else.

(Running 3 different computers with Windows XP home & pro 32bit, with fairly good computers.)

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 :: Print Merge With Formatting Options

Dec 5, 2012

I am using CorelDraw to create price labels for my store.  When I merge in the price field for an item I want it to show on the label with the cents in superscript as opposed to using a decimal and full sized cents text.  Is this possible in any version of CorelDraw using the print merge feature?

Keep in mind that I also have the price field in an envelope so that the price takes up the full size allotted on the label whether the price is $1.99 or $999.99.

CorelDRAW X6 :: Laser Engraver Can't Pick Up Cut Lines On Print Merge

May 15, 2012

I am 2 days into using X6 instead of X4 attached to my trotec engraver,  using XP.All goes well with the print to the trotec job control, with it picking up the red vector cut line.

But if I print multiple pages, or use print merge (which is essentially the same thing), the cut line only prints as red on the first page.  From then on the print line is some grey colour and consequently the laser does not pick it up.

Have tried changing colour conversion to the Trotec, but this doesn't have any effect.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Printing Options Not Saved With Print Merge?

Nov 23, 2012

Whenever I perform a PrintMerge the print dialog and its options are reset everytime I leave the print dialog.

Usually you hit print set parameters and hit apply, you now can cancel the dialog and hit print again, your previous settings should still be there. Same goes if you actually print and want to repeat the print process, as long as you dont close the document. This works for normal printing but fails with print merge.

Every time I close the dialog (not the document) all the settings are back to default. This did not happen in X5 and is very annoying since it resets to default even if you actually hit print, forcing you to set the parameters every time.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Print Merge Large Files Without Crashing Or Having To Break It Into Digestible Bits

Aug 3, 2011

Just a guess but with 64 bit Coreldraw maybe we would be able to Print Merge large files without crashing or having to break it into digestible bits.

Do vector conversion of complex images.Use Coreldraw like a publishing program,  - kick Indesign

Computer memory is no longer the issue - 32 bit computer programs are.Until then I will stay with X4. run in Windows 7, 64 bit with 12 Gigs RAM.

InDesign :: Data Jumbled And Repeating In Data Merge?

Feb 1, 2013

I'm creating a catalog, using data merge in InDesign CS5.5 for the first time. I'm using dummy data to start, naming the products with a naming convention Product 1, Product 2, etc.
Everything seemed to be working, but then I noticed that the merge is all jumbled, such as:

Page 1 has Product 15 repeated, with the product description, price and other information from product 6. This repeats five times down the first page.Page 2 starts with Product name, price and number for Product 7, but the description for product 6. Continuing on page 2, everything seems one off. Product names mixed with data from the next product. Page 3-15 are the same as page 1, all Product 15 with the description for Product 6.  

In short, this is very weird. I am saving the data in a CSV comma deliminated (also tried text with tab delineations.) I don't think there are any text breaks in the data, nor blanks. The odd thing is also that the preview looks perfect before I merge the document.
Here's Page 1:

Here's page 2:

By the way, all numbers (except pupil price) relay the product number. For example, Product 1 has a price of $1.00, an item number of H1, and the description "This is product 1".

CorelDRAW X6 :: Make Print Merge Fields Relative In Position To Other Fields?

Oct 1, 2013

Is there any way to make print merge fields relative in position to other fields or to non-variable text.

For example if I am doing address labels and I have fields for City and State:

Their positions are absolute, and the state ends up overwriting the city for long city text, as does the comma.

What I want is for the comma to follow the last letter of the city, and then state to follow that.

And yes, I realize that I can combine all three into one field, but I am asking this as a general usage of the feature. One doesn't always have control over the source.

Lots of Excel data - eg: 6685.excel example.tifcolumns x AZrows x 300 upwards

All rows required to create a book of running information.

If I use a label type approach some rows  have less data making the layout uneven (unsuitable for the project)

Is there a way to merge with a fluid result ?

Ie row one takes up 2 lines Row 2 takes up 5 lines Row 3 takes up 1 line etc

InDesign :: Cannot Remove Blank Line In Data Merge

I am placing addresses on a mailer. I need to remove lines where there is a blank field (ex. apartment numbers are on some but not others). I have checked the remove blank lines option in the data merge drop down menu but it doesn't seem to work. I also did the find/change option once the file was created and it also didn't work. I am not sure what possibly could be going on. I am using INdesign CS6 on a mac. Here is a screen shot of the file before the merge, the setting menu, the file after merge and the csv file.
