I have a small project that I need help with.
I am working on an online survey for a client of mine; which consist of 10 odd pages of questions as well as free text entry on some of the questions. Some of the questions requires number input which then converted into charts (bar graphs etc.)
Survey is done as a web app (using .NET and C# and MySQL) and resulting data converted into XML format in order to generate a report based on the answers that the members provide. Currently data is imported into MSWord and report is generated as .docx file.
Client is not happy with the presentation of the word so I suggested that we can use InDesign to have a better look/feel of the report, using the same XML structure.
There are 1000+ members that need to take this survey, which means that report has to be generated for each client individually (different answers, different inputs, branding and so on.)
I understand the basics of generating a book from XML to InDesign but I can't figure out how can I apply this workflow into producing 1000+ different copies. (with one click if possible!)
Do I need to have 1000+ InDesign documents with SAME XML structure but DIFFERENT branding (different heading colours etc.) or is there a way to generate the reports (in PDF) in a more efficient way.
I'll be happy to answer if you have any questions or need clarification.
Any suggestions welcome Thanks
