    A weird use for variable data.


      I have a unique problem that I'm hoping I can use inDesign or illustrator to fix. I work with blue prints in order to make message schedules (basically showing where signage will be placed and what it will say). I have to label each sign location with a number that corresponds with an Excel sheet. Is there any way to automate the numbering process where I can make hundreds of copies of a number and object and the number will go up automatically? Hopefully that was coherent enough. If not I can provide pictures to help illustrate the problem. Thanks in advance.
