MC Research’s LinkUP! 7 is an XTension for QuarkXPress 6/7 that lets you associate text in your document with fields exported from any database.
At any time, you can tell LinkUP! to replace the associated text with the current information in the database.
It’s great for making sure that item names, descriptions, codes, and prices are current in a catalog or directory. LinkUP! costs €300 or $375.
