    InDesign: Importing XLS and Exporting to XML

    PJ-Designer

      I have used InDesign to successfully import data from an XLS into InD (for instance, a catalog of many records with photos is imported into InD). What I need to do in this project is to export the spreadsheet data that flows into my InDesign document into an XML document. My thought is that I will set up the XML schema in InDesign, the imported data will flow from the spreadsheet into the appropriate fields that I have setup. Then, I would export the resulting pages into one large document (I have a java script that will then parse out the XML pages into separate documents, one for each XML record). Has anyone done anything similar to this, and if so, is there any reason why this workflow would not be suitable for this task? Thanks!
