AutoPrice for Mac and PC
Meadows Publishing has released AutoPrice, a price updating application for QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign documents. The program is designed to perform price updates on catalogs or retail fliers, while offering additional tools to update phone lists, time tables, or other information that can be referenced by a key value. Users can process large projects using batch processing, while the program also supports special price styling, picture imports and ODBC for updating documents in flat-file format.
An ODBC XTensions module can be used to create customized SQL queries, stored with placeholders inside of the QuarkXPress documents. The software also provides a built-in report generator that lists updated items, current values, page numbers, missing items and error codes.
AutoPrice is compatible with QuarkXPress 4.11 through 7.00 on Mac systems, QuarkXPress 4.11 through 6.5 on a Windows system, and InDesign CS through CS4 on both platforms. Pricing information is available directly from the company.
