Help: I want to build pages for some (but not all) records in my database.

How do I do this?
I have a master Excel Database with lots of records, being updated constantly. I want to use Web Merge to build pages for the most recently added records, but not all.
Seems like it should be so simple - to build pages from, for example, rows 79-85 of the database.
Is it right in front of my face and I'm not seeing it?
So A Newbie

Simplest solution I know of, is to make a new spreadsheet using only the records you want and then run WM off of that.
As long as you can easily find the desired records in the big spreadsheet, it should be easy to copy/paste 'em into the new one.

So you can select the rows 79-85 of the database and do something similar, there might be an easier way, but that way works fine for me so far....

I think there is another way that may be used for updating selected pages. I did not try it and I am giving this solution as ideas come to me, in real time.
1/ Add a column/a field in your datafeed.
2/ Name it as you like (i.e. Update)
3/ Empty this column
4/ Select lines to update with a char in "update" field - say "X"
5/ Completely enclose your template with an "WM if" [WM-If WM-Field: Update = X]Your template[/WM-If]
[WM-If WM-Field: Update = X]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1">
Do not forget to NOT generate index in that case.
If you use WM to add some new pages, it will also work but you'll have to update manually your indexes (or do a full generation).
My two cents
