DATAform Add-on

Hint for DATAformPlugin users for InDesign
Since 2006 the DATAform technology has been available for InDesign as well.
The DATAformPlugin for InDesign implements a very similar set of functions and features like DATAformXTension does for QuarkXPress. Hence the DATAformXTension handbooks can also be applied to the DATAformPlugin for InDesign. A description of the remaining differences you may find here:

A brief introduction of DATAform Add-on.
How can I create complete QuarkXPress or InDesign documents automatically?
Can I create new documents, new boxes and later update them?
How does DATAform make a database and my layout program understand each other?
How does the bi-directional updating work?
