Building a 300 pages PDF based on a designtemplate and a database? - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

Hi all, Here's what I'm trying to do and I haven't figured out the best software combination to do it: I have a database with 600 records (each record has 10 entries) I'd like to use a program like InDesign to build a one-page template based on those 10 fields, then have them populated from the database and export the whole thing as a PDF. It's basically building a nice PDF based on records from a database. Any recommendations as to how to approach this and what software to use? Thanks...

    Hi all,
    Here's what I'm trying to do and I haven't figured out the best software combination to do it:

    I have a database with 600 records (each record has 10 entries)
    I'd like to use a program like InDesign to build a one-page template based on those 10 fields, then have them populated from the database and export the whole thing as a PDF.

    It's basically building a nice PDF based on records from a database.

    Any recommendations as to how to approach this and what software to use?

    Thanks

    What you are describing is "database publishing", quite a specialist
    area, and there are specialist tools. You may also find add-ons for
    InDesign.

    Thanks Aandi
    Will do some more research based on these words.
    Would you by any chance know of any InDesign plug-in that would do the job?
    Thanks in advance

    Look for FileMaker Pro.

    Actually I found a couple of good ones. InDesign even does it out of the box! Thanks for pointing into the right direction :)

    I don't, sorry, but I'm not familiar with that market. You certainly
    should ask in the InDesign forum.
