If I create a document in Quark Xpress, can I 'link' / 'join' / what-else an external data source and simply use automatic repeatedd sections and placeholders so updating external source will allow an update in my xpress project?
I do not want to simply import a table!
For example: I have a file with a list of name, surname, phones, address, etc...
I'd like to tell xpress to insert a section with n repeated sections, and in each section place in the top left the surname, in the top right the phone, at center of second row the phone number, etc...
I ask here because I never worked before with this software, and actually as developer I must create 'something' that can be used as 'datasource' to easily generate a document in quark xpress. . .
I think it must be possibile, I simply do not understand how to create this kind of 'macro' or 'automatism' to use an external datasource.
Please, be patient with me, first posts here. Ask, and I'll try to update my question.
If this is NOT possible, an answer with a simple 'it's not possible' will be accepted.
