I have many InDesign CS4 documents (not opposed to a CS5 upgrade if it will help) that have a table containing a parts list. This list is available on my SQL server - I currently export to CSV,then embed an excel sheet. is there a way to have this dynamically pull right from the SQL server? an add-on maybe?

The only thing I could find that comes close is EasyFlow. It says on the home page it can do the opposite of what you are asking. I have read on other sites it can do what you are asking. I think it might be for CS5 only, but maybe I am wrong. It has a free 30 day trial, and so does Indesign. You could try it first and if it works buy it.
