Hi Forum membersI work for a large retailer. We want to produce a catalogue of products from our SAP business warehouse database (there is an ODBC connector for this database technology)Each record contains a URL link to a free-form, possibly multi-page MS Word document that is a specification for the product.We need to produce a paper copy of this document, as well as a PDF version.Is there a Quark product that can do this kind of merging? If so, which one?Thanks for your help,Joon

Hi,
You can use QuarkXPress together with one XTensions made by Em Software (XData or XCatalog). You can read more abot them here.
If you need a solution designed for large scale publishing, there is also QuarkXPress Server, or Quark Publishing Platform. You can read abot this here.
If you need immediate help, please go to the link shown in the header of this forum page.
Thanks.

You are welcom.

I do not use XCatalog, I'm using only XData, which needs TXT files, not MS Word docs.
Please check on the internet page of the producer.
