Horizontal column flow in InDesign

November 30Hits:0

Dear all, hapy to discover this forum. I was searching hours on it in order to find a solution, but didn't find anything  But I can't imagine that others doesn't deal with a simular problem.
I am working on a kind of encyclopedia. And the system is as follows:
For each name I have 2 columns. And each name is placed below each other (see my image for this, it's a jpg of a spread), separated by a line. But my text area has the stay on each page the same. I was wondering if there is a system to automatically flow from one page to another... So, if there is a text correction and i have to delete some rows, that i can easily repair this? 
I tried to paste several horizontal columns in another text area. When I place my cursor before the columns and enter some returns, they move on my fixed baseline grid, but the problem starts when my last column of page 2 have to go to page 3 (i couldn't link the columns inside my text area to each other). Or the entire name is placed to page 3 or nothing. But I can't divide it in two parts (one on p.2 and another on p.3). I hope that I am clear and that someone can help me with this problems. I think my jpg can explain a lot (I don't necessary need a solution for the lines as dividers, these ones I can enter afterwards, which should also take me a lot of time of course).

thanks, i found the trial version... i first installed apid and so on and it is installed correctly...
but i really don't know how to use it...
i have different paragraph styles (one for name; one for date; one for text information), but i just need this 2 column flow for all these paragraph styles.
so, i imported my text in a text area and in my first paragraph style name starts with 2...
but of course all the text is still in 1 column after importing.
do i have to select anything in the column flow settings?
when i select this text area, i can select "flow current page" and so on ... in the plugin men, but this only gives errors...
would be great if anyone can say me what i have to do step by step in my situation.
i guess i am just stupid
