    Book Content as the report of a Database

    Jack Level 1

      I’m quite certain that I can make a good beginning of a book of photos from my SQL database of image files.

       

      Database of photos has an images table with columns:

      —ImageClass

      —Image filename

      —ImageCaption

      —Image Description

       

      The idea is then to populate (a section of) the book with all images of a given class or group of classes, optionally placing captions under images or merging captions with longer, more verbose descriptions in the back of the book.

       

      Wondering if any of you have seen an application (plugin?) that can help me accomplish this within inDesign.

       

      In other words, is inDesign (or can it be made) SQL-query-data-aware?

       

      Thanks in advance.
