From Meadows Publishing Solutions:
The AutoPrice plug-in provides sophisticated linking of QuarkXPress documents to any external database of information. As the name implies, AutoPrice is great for performing pricing updates on catalogs, retail flyers and similar publications, but is also perfect for updating phone lists, time tables, or any other type of information that can be referenced by a key valuesuch as a product number (SKU). AutoPrice works by allowing the user to establish placeholders within new or existing QuarkXPress documents which are linked to a database file.
Unlike other software products which require that you link to a specific text or picture box, AutoPrice lets you link to any range of text or any picture frame. This means that you do not have to restructure your layout to accommodate the links, thereby simplifying the design and editing process. AutoPrice also allows you to automatically style incoming prices in virtually any fashion. In addition, our exclusive DDF implementation makes it easy to spin-off multiple versions of your catalog or document from a single source, and our GroupPicture product allows you to automate the catalog page building process.
