and welcome to the support forum.
Of course can i help you with this. The error message you’re describing tells us that a placeholder is not visible in a text frame.
A placeholder is basically something like this “<<First name>>” in your layout document where you want to place data. These placeholders are detected by MyDataMerge when you import the layout.
Sometimes placeholders are hidden in a text frames overset text (red plus at the bottom right of a text frame). Then MyDataMerge cannot detect placeholders and will throw this message.
Could you please check your layout document if you have overset text somewhere? Here is a good small tutorial on how to find overset text fast.
