Sabon... the font from hell

Trying to do a data merge with this font and it all goes to hell.
I knew I was gonna have problems when I couldn't make a PDF with that font (that looked like it was supposed to).

any suggestions?

Used Indesign CC 2018, and ID 2015, no help either way.

Man, that show was one of the best shows. I still try to implement some of Roy's ideas at my work. Haven't got the phone rigged up the same yet though.

The IT Crowd. It was a British comedy that ran for four seasons. The seasons are short over there so its got about 24-25 episodes.
