    Data Merge - Linking Excel to InDesign

    Daniel Stoltz

      Hello,

       

      My team has been asked to create a data base in excel that can be linked/data merged into InDesign. This is for a product catalog contain many thousands of items, which uses a listing format.

       

      First, I would like to take the information from the current InDesign file and import it into excel. If posible, I would like to link the information at this point, but since it's not setup as a table, it may be difficult to do so. Therefore, next I would like to organize the exported information into the correct tables and merge it back into InDesign.

       

      The goal is to have an excel file where product information can be maintained and linked to the InDesign file (eliminating multiple maintaince steps. Any help would be great!

       

       

      Thank you!
