    Mail merge using illustrator

    hovercraft2x

      Hi There,

       

      I'm trying to find a way to automatically populate data into Illustrator and InDesign.  I was thinking of doing it using Applescript and importing an excel file into an illustrator graph object.  My boss suggested i look into using Xtags as a means to do a data merge with the illustrator/indesign files.  Is this possible? it seems that xtag is a format used with Quark.  is it also available in Adobe products?

       

      Thanks,

       

      (sorry if my terminology is off, i'm a programmer so my knowledge of adobe design products is limited)
