Video Introduction
Benefits

Powerful Merge Ability

Automatically merge data into placeholders, creating new pages as needed. Hundreds of pages can be generated with a click of a button.

Powerful Barcode features with BarcodeMaker

DataLinker integrates with BarcodeMaker so that you can put your data into almost any kind of barcode automatically.

Unlimited Possibilities

Link numerous data sources! It’s easy to connect CSV and ODBC data sources to an InDesign document with DataLinker.

Formatting Flexibility

Have the ability to automatically format data as it is placed into a document according to settings created for each field.

Updated Information

DataLinker will automatically insert new information or changes made to a data source with its synchronize feature that allows either one field to be updated individually or the entire document.

GREP Formatting

Take all of the powerful formatting ability offered by GREP find/change and apply it to data as it flows in from the database. Now you have almost no limits to the sorts of changes you want to apply to your data, whether it is currency formatting, percentage formatting, or any other possibility you can imagine.

Scripting power with XML Rules

Write simple scripts using InDesgin's XML Rule scripting feature and modify your layout based on the data coming from your database. For example, say you're creating an employee directory, and you want to color code the entries based on the department each person is in. With DataLinker, implementing that is just a simple script away!

DataLinker Utilities

Want to update only one field in your database, but over the entire document? The new sample scripts that come with DataLinker make it easy, and if you don't like the way it works, you can go into the script and change it!

Straightforward Control

One palette controls all of the plug-in's capabilities and with just a few clicks, data is connected.
