I am creating a catalog using CS5.5 and need to import datain to a table format. I can import my xml file into a place holder, however, it will not work for my catalog format. I've tried data merge, and that will not work either. I will need the data to be linked so that I can update right before it goes to print. Does anyone know how to create a linked data table? Below is an example of what I am trying to accomplish with each field linked to my data base.

Get it into an XLS file and turn on linked text (and spreadsheet) files in Preferences, and then File > Place the file.
