Techno Design developed this application to fulfill wishes of customers to manage information (in particular product descriptions) from databases. Data Link enables the user to define variable fields within QuarkXPress, corresponding to similar fields in a standard database These fields may contain simple information (e.g. price statement), or they can be complex (product description). Variable fields can be used any number of times and placed anywhere on a QuarkXPress page. When information in the database file changes, fields are automatically updated. During the update process, text styles will be maintained. Data Link allows links to ASCII files containing (alpha) numerical references or direct links to a SQL-server. Data Link ensures accurate updates of information in a catalogue, even at the latest moment, just before publishing, without having to worry about the integrity of the data.
