    Hi,

    I work in a small B2B company, and we publish each year a small catalog (80 pages) filled with technical references.
    The catalog is not intended to have beautiful pictures ... etc. but to just be a listing of products.

    We start with a big Excel file, what is the best way to transform our basic excel into something usable by a printing company
    (PDF HD or PS)?

    Are there simple ways to import data from Excel into indesign or Quark? Specialized software to do this?
    Are there any other software more adapted to our case than InDesign / Quark?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    You can print to PDF from OS X's "Print" window (look in the bottom left). Past that, you should ask the printing company what they want.
