I have a very large excel file with a list of companies in this format:
company_category company_name company_description telephone email
In InDesign I have paragraph style for each one but I need a solution to import all this data and apply the styles automatically.
- I don't want to import all these into a table. I want all the info in a 3 text columns format that will run accros 150 pages (more or less)
- I'm using InDesign CS6
Is there any way to automate this?
Save the exl files as a tab delimited txt file. Import this file in indesign and create a para style with 3 nested styles for each of the columns you need.
This might be a good candidate for Data Merge, which you may read about in the help files.
