It might be worth investigating Ventura (yes, Ventura <grin<). Several
years ago I was working on a catalog for a company and used what was
then called Ventura Database Publisher to import the data. I see from
recent promotional material that Ventura Database Publisher is now part
of the standard Ventura Publisher package available from Corel. If you
can build a query to retrieve the data, Ventura should be able to work
with that to make it a dynamic catalog.
