    Tutorial for automating document creation?

    mrdior Level 1

      Hi. I've finally weaved my way here from the PS and AI forums. I've been told InDesign is the best CS tool to use to auto-generate a series of personalized gift certificates from a data file.

       

      If I have a gift certificate blank created in AI and a CSV file populated with names, how do I go about reading in the CSV file and generating 1 PDF file per name (or record in the CSV file)? Is there a tutorial or reference anyone can point me at to get me up to speed asap??

       

      Thanks!!
