    If you mean frame, then maybe…what version of InDesign are you using?

    You don't mention your version, but in CS5 or CS5.5, this will get you close: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/indesign/cs/using/WS8c5bc4f64c7a4a3d-52990 7f712dbcd5a3af-8000.html

    This is not a feature I've used myself, but I think it's safe to say that there is no automatic update, and styling is going to be a manual operation.

    The other possibility might be to use a variable. You should read about them in the help, too. If the entries are short enough to ALWAYS fit on a single line this might work better. A varaible should update on its own, and you can style the text any way you like without affecting the content in other ways. The downside is that a variable is a single character, as far as formatting and layout are concerned, so if the text gets too long it squezzes in on itself, and you can only have one format for all the text included in the variable.

    Have you tried a cross-reference?

     

    Search Google for terms like "InDesign cross-reference tutorial help" without quotes for details.
