    How can I access text in a Filemaker data base from InDesign

    Spartan707 Level 1

      I am a small publisher. I use InDesign for book production and I am looking for a way to use a Filemaker database as a source for text into the Indesign layout.

      My application is very similar to wanting to create a product catalog and keep the product descriptions directly updated from the product description text in the database.

       

      I am using Filemaker 15 Adv Pro and Indesign CC.

       

      My first problem is how I set up the access from the Indesign application to link to the database.

       

      Can you assist with how I can do this, or point me to a possible source for advice.

       

      Thank you
