The add-on is ready to connect to your MySQL database. Coming soon, it will connect with SQLServer and more.

iziDBConnect grants you make layouts like music concert listings, event listings, classifieds, film previews, etc.

You can create many configurations to access differents servers, tables, or SQL queries.

To create a configuration, you need only five easy steps:

STEP 1:
Enter a name and the connection data: user, password, database, and server. If your database server runs in a non-standard port, then add it.

STEP 2:
Select query mode. You can select between two query modes.
Table: Select a table name and what table column you want to use to order rows.
You can add more than one column, and you can add a standard SQL order statement.
SQL: Write a SQL statement. Any statement that your database supports.

STEP 3:
Connect DB column names to InDesign Tags.

Inside your Indesign document, define a text frame in your layout with the text design. Then, tag it with ”sample_text”. Next, create your InDesign Tags and tag the replace text with the InDesign Tags you have defined.

STEP 4:
If you want to insert headers between contents, select mode:
Fill with the first character: Only add a header when the field's first character is not equal to the previous field's first character.
Fill with full-field: Add a header when the field is not equal to the previous field.

Inside your Indesign document, define a text frame in your layout with the header design. Tag it with ”sample_header” and tag the replace text inside the sample_header with ”sample_header_title”.

STEP 5:
Tag the text frame you want to fill with the database data with the ”target” tag.
