Publishing Data

In general, when you work with data publishing, you follow this process:

  1. Create a data object.
  2. Create a data list.
  3. Design a set of stacked pages.

When you create a data list, you create the stacked page for the data object. On this stacked page you create the Layout to be used for all the pages in the stack, including the field data you want to display on the page.

  • If you are storing data internally, you enter the field data on the stacked page itself.
  • If you are using an external source, the field data is drawn from the external database, spreadsheet, or ASCII text file.

When you use the Data List tool in Page view, you can perform all three tasks within the Data Publishing dialog.
