Who wouldn't like that?!
Or rather: I think the big empty part of Data Merge right now is its inability to handle XML input. Much as I detest XML, it seems like a lot of people would really like that to happen, it does appear to be a Web 2.0 -type technology that it's easy to get the InDesign Marketing team excited about.
It's easy enough to convert XLS/XLSX into CSV (or XML), so I think improving XML would be a better use of scarce resources...
(I can't believe I'm tossing out a vote in favor of XML. Kill me now!)
Good point, but this request is still relevant and was aimed at the user that doesn't have a clue what XML is!
Actually the main reason I came back here was to boost users going to www.indesign.uservoice.com, I think it's more relevant than these pages. Sure Adobe could totally ignore it if they wanted to but the fact it's already got a whole lot of useless ideas with 1 vote and a whole lot of good ieas with 50+ means something I think.
Saw this on LinkedIn this morning: Fuga Technologies | Easy Automation and Dynamic Templates in InDesign
Not sure how they collect the money...
