FileMaker integration with InDesign on Windows

I work for a publishing company and we are currently using a piece of custom written code (started out as Applescript, has been upgraded to Objective C) to facilitate integration between FileMaker and InDesign.

 

This code only works on Mac's.

 

We are needing to move to a full Windows environment (corporate policy) so I am investigating options to replace this custom code.

 

I remember finding a FileMaker plugin a few months ago that looked promising, but I haven't been able to track it down again.

 

Does anyone know of any plugin or software that would allow us to easily integrate with InDesign?

 

We need to generate thousands of ads every year, so any sort of manual export to XML and import is not going to be practical. The current solution works with the click of a single button, extracting the information out of FileMaker and building the ad in InDesign using 1 of many different templates.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Paul.
