With a strong IT background and extensive DTP experience I fully understand the issues when it comes to getting data into a publishable form. Databases are often held on a PC in a format that may as well be Martian to your average editor or designer. Your IT staff may understand the data but are at a total loss when it comes to the DTP side.
I already have a program that I wrote to format data held in Microsoft Excel into a readily usable form for importing into InDesign or Quark Express. Follow this link if you would like to read more.
If you are considering publishing data or have reoccurring DTP issues, be it something as simple as foreign characters not working from submitted copy, then I am sure that if I don't have the solution already I can create it for you.
