I need to know what i'm doing wrong.

i'm making a catalog that needs 4 images per page. as so. desired result i know i can't do that with facing pages so i separated the two pages and created individual file for each page.

i'm running in to a problem when trying to generate mulitple records per page, from the tutorials and other forum posts i've read i SHOULD be setting it up right... but its not working.

here is the set up that i THINK i'm doing right. doc setup

data merge options. options

detailed options

as you can see, its only generating 1 record per page... i need 4. since i have over 500 records that i don't want to do by hand.

ok i figured it out. i was putting NON-REPEATING elements on the page where my preview was. when i should have put them on the master page instead. leaving first page of the layout to generate the rest of the document. problem solved. –  BrianC Mar 21 at 22:13
