Inspite of all its qualities, Datamerge is unable to produce true tables.
But what if you want to use datamerging and yet get a true Indesign table ?
Here is a script that may be helpful !
Open an Indesign document and create your table.
Load your datamerge source file in the the datamerge panel.
Tag cells as you want.
Select the row to duplicate.
Run the script. You get a fully editable Indesign Table !
