Xactuell for InDesign CS3

Developer's Description

Xactuell allows you to transfer information from databases into layout documents and backwards. It communicates with all common databases and interchange formats like MySQL, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, Excel, FileMaker, XML, CSV, DB/2, Sybase, Access, SQlite, Informix, Lotus Notes, ... An iBase database is already included.
With Xactuell it is possible to link text sections inside of text boxes, entire text boxes, picture boxes and tables. Once a link between a layout document and a database is established, the linked objects (e.g. prices, texts and pictures) in the document can be updated at any time. The update can either cover the entire document, or refer to certain selected page areas or queries only (e.g. if only the prices, but not the corresponding product descriptions are to be updated). If required, the process also works the other way round: data from the layout document can be written back onto the database, e.g. to create a page index.
Xactuell understands the full command scope of the tagged text filter, e.g. for formatting text passages exactly as they should appear in your layout.
Feel free to make manual layout modifications at any time, your layout will stay a native layout document (enriched with the latest information from your database).
Catalogues produced with Xactuell can always have an individual appearance and do not necessarily look like typical generated "database publishing" catalogues.
