I need to create 200 A6 sized profile cards. Each card must contain a person's name, job role, three key things they are currently working on and a full body photograph.
All the data is currently being collated in Microsoft Access (not currently sure of version). If Access is a problem I can convert to Excel. I am using InDesign CS6.
My question is - is there an easy way to mass import this data onto each profile card?
Many thanks in advance, I appreciate any suggestions :-)
If you can save the information from Acess as either a .csv or tab-delimited text file you can use ID's Data Merge feature.
That's really helpful, thank you for responding so quickly.
Another approach is export data from Access to xml-file. Create a template with placeholders in InDesign (in your case 5 text frames and a graphic frame). Then you can import the xml-file and InDesign will automatically create all the profile cards.
