Convert big Indesign document into Word/Excel

Hi guys,

First of all, I don't know if I am at the right place for my question.

We are currently in the final stages of editing our price-list. This is price-list exists of over 120 pages and is completely build up in Indesign and when finished exported into PDF. Because we get multiple content changes every now and then, we are looking for a way to make this document accessible for non-Indesign users, so we can use our time for other things then editing tables.

I was thinking of completely transitioning the document into a word document with a linked excel document. This way, our sales department can edit and export it their self. It would be great if there would be a way to just convert it but we wouldn't mind to have to build it from scratch.

The reason I post this question here is to get advice from you guys. What would be the best approach to do this? Is there a better way?

Cheers Marten!

If your InDesign document is set in one continuous flow, you can export it as RTF (Rich Text Format), a Word-compatible format that includes styling.
