The DesignMerge Rules Module
is a standard component of DesignMerge Pro that provides sophisticated
conditional processing and interactive testing features.
By using conditional processing (if-then-else
statements) in your VDP jobs, you have the ability to control
the content or styling of the data or layout, based upon the
contents of one or more database fields. Rules can be applied
to individual Variable Links, Boxes, or entire document pages,
and are evaluated and executed in real time, during the merge
The DesignMerge Rules Module supports a large
set of pre-defined “Actions” that can be applied
to data, boxes, or page content in a QuarkXPress or InDesign
layout. The Rules Module also includes several unique testing
and debugging features that allow you to interactively preview
Rules using live data.

about using the DesignMerge Rules Module
to control the styling of data in a VDP job.
