    Is CS6 capable of 'Data Mapping' from an excel based database?

    Danity7 Level 1

      I have CS6 and want to know if it is capable of data mapping from an excel based database.

       

      Basically i am using inDesign to create new Organisational Charts for my company. i have 23 seperate documents created, all of which conatin; 1 image box and 2 text boxes per each employee in that particular department.

       

      I want each document from inDesign to point at the database and pull in the correct details to each box within that document.

       

      I am aware of the 'place' feature but all this does is allow to you to select a range of cells and dump that in the document randomly.

       

      i have tried ringing adobe and they ponted me to here.

       

      I am a man on the edge with this... someone please help. Even if its to say 'NO' inDesign does not support this feature.

       

      Thanks in advance, Danny.
