Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing data, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
So we are now ready to import our XML into our structured template.…I'm in the realworldtravel_2up.indt template that is in the XML folder.…I have my Structure pane open which lists my tags and their hierarchy.…I also have on my page a bunch of frames that have been tagged with the tags that have been created in this document…and those tags correspond to the tags that have been applied to my incoming XML so that when I click on the Root tag…in the Structure pane and choose Import XML, I want to merge rather than append content.…
In this case, it is not going to make any difference, but if I already had content in this document, Merge would replace it.…Append would add the new content to the end of it. And I'm going to scroll down…and use this document, realworldtravel.xml, click Open.…Now the only options here that are really relevant for me in this case are that I want to create a link and that's going…to make a link to the XML document similar to the way the links are made to placed graphics.…
Clone repeating text elements. I'm going to have that on although I don't have any.…
