Updating Data After Merging with and without XML in InDesign

Most data merge oper­a­tions cre­ate the merged doc­u­ments and then nev­er update them again. Other projects, like point-of-sale sig­nage, mail­ers, and a host of oth­er VDP designs, need to be able to update, alter, and even com­plete­ly replace the data set after merg­ing using a Live Merge doc­u­ment. This clip is a teas­er that shows you exact­ly how a Live Merge doc­u­ment works.
