Connect EasyCatalog directly to your database with our generic ODBC Data Provider. Get up-to-the minute information as often as you need using the power of SQL.+
This link is bi-directional, allowing any changes made to the document to be sent back to the database.
This module is ideal for users whose database is constantly changing, as it removes the need to export your database to a file before importing it into EasyCatalog.
Take your data with you
The ODBC Data Provider works by taking a snapshot of data that can be updated at any time. This overcomes the need to have a constant connection to your database and means you to carry on working during periods where the database is unavailable and even work at home or on the move!
The Data Provider is also bi-directional, so any changes to linked content in InDesign can be updated straight back into the database. The Data Provider knows when a field has changed and efficiently applies any updates back into the database. Spotted an error in your data? Update it on the document and send the change back to the database to prevent the error being repeated in future.
Multiple views of your Database
Any number of data sources can be configured at one time, each with it's own SQL statement, allowing a virtually unlimited view of your database. As with all EasyCatalog panels, you can create new views at any time - each with their own sorting, grouping and filtering configurations.
Support for your particular database is dependant on the availability of ODBC client drivers - Windows users usually get these at no extra cost from their database vendor.
