"Does anyone have any experience of importing XML-tables in Indesign and formatting them? "
From what i have seen so far.. it's a bit rough and far from being "round-trip" ready! (export in 4.0 namespace while 5.0 is supported at import (tablestyle property by ex.).
I'm also looking for more documentation... maybe in the SDK??
I am new to indesign. And i want know how to convert CALS Table structure (XML) to Indesign. Please Help Me........
Just check the checkbox "Import CALS tables as Indesign tables" in the XML import options dialogbox. Then it should go automatically.
The problem with this approach is that the entire table structure is collapsed to a single table element in the struture. If one want to do some xml-prosessing at row or cell level one need to to this outside indesign or not import CALS as Indesign tables. The big question is if there is some easy way to convert a CALS table to an Indesign table inside Indesign after one have imported the data and prosessed the row and cell elements...
Hope anyone knows more than me about this....
Anyway, mkarthic, I hope my answer helped you to import your CALS tables!:-)
