Indesign - Directory creation - automated import/layout generation

I have a local database file (Firebird SQL, alternative MySQL database on a webserver is possible) which contains several hundred records (e.g. addresses) and would like to automatically generate an Indesign file using one or several pre-defined templates by importing the data. You can imagine this like an address book – we take the data from the local database, merge it with a pre-defined design template, and do this for several dozens or hundred times, thereby creating something like an address directory. However, the listings in the output file need to make use of some layout/artwork, i.e. it is not enough to just copy the text into a string list or something like that, and import that. When bidding please describe your proposed technical solution and any third party software needed in addition to Indesign. Open to any programming language which can do the job. Deliverable: Import tool.

Skills: Adobe InDesign, C# Programming, Delphi, MySQL, PHP
