    What's the best way to do a special kind of table?

      Hi everyone,

       

      Twice a year, our magazine prints the financial reports of our organization. The layout is always exactly the same: the only thing that changes are the numbers. I have the layout exactly how I want it. The easiest (but least efficient) workflow has been to manually replace the numbers each time, typing by hand.

       

      I was wondering if there was some kind of slick way of automating this process. The financial data comes in a native Excel file. I was wondering if I could set up some kind of thing where InDesign could read raw data coming in from another application?

       

      Anything come to mind?

       

      Thanks
