    Hello all,

    spaces of the doent, what do I need to do this ?,
    would it be the SDK from indesign or maybe there is
    something easier to do using the indesing tool itself ?

    The SDK is for plugin development, what you are looking for is the scripting
    interface, in windows system in ID2 any COM-aware language (e.g. Visual
    Basic (VB)), in IDCS Javascript and any COM-aware language. With VB you can
    easily connect InDesign with any ODBC source, but you will need some
    programming experience.
    See the scripting guide pdf hidden on one of your installation CDs. If you
    aren't able to program for yourself, maybe you should visit the
    newsgroup/forum adobe.scripting.indesign to find someone in your near that
    you can hire to do your coding work.

    You need the PageMaker plug-in which has a DataMerge facility.
