    Parsing Complex .idms Files

    jakejgordon

      This is my first post in the forum so thanks in advance for your help! The problem we are having is that all of our valuable product content information exists primarily in InDesign and we need a way to parse it out to store in our database. We have a very capable programming staff that is quite familiar with parsing XML but the .idms file which we are able to export appears to have a very complex schema and we are hoping to find an existing API for parsing these types of files. Has anyone tried to do this before? We have our entire product catalog in 22 languages embedded in these files and we'd like to avoid hand-keying this data back into our database. Preferably we'd like to use a C# .NET or java API. Thanks so much!
