Adjust font size to fit text to frame in InDesign


Question

I'm using InDesign data merge to generate lots of filled-in pages. I have a specific text block which holds a name, but always needs to be on one line. Is there any way I can have InDesign automatically reduce the font-size if the text wraps?

Im not sure of the context but when I encounter similar situations when doing certificates I will use the preview toggle on the DataMerge panel to preview the largest value before I run the merge. Then I adjust the font size so that the largest values fit. Then I will run the merge. This way all the names are formatted consistently.
