Active Tables

Active Tables plug-in brings the spreadsheet-like functionality to InDesign. It allows to sort tables and create formulas.

Formulas are not limited to work with data within one table, so you can just copy/paste your price-list table on the pasteboard making sure all prices in your catalog are up to date. Even better, formulas can be placed to any text in the document, so you can have calculation results display anywhere you need them to.
