Is this even possible?

Ok, so upfront, I've never worked in premiere pro. I do want to know if it would be possible to do something in premiere. I edit livestock sale videos and we put things like birth weight in the video, however, those numbers can change weekly (ex: Would there be a way to build a layer within premiere that I can then just export data to from say an excel spreadsheet? Basically I'm looking for a quick way to update the video without having to rebuild the background template.
Thank you for any input.

No, that's not possible. You'll need to make changes manually. Just duplicate the sequence, and then copy-paste the new values from your spreadsheet into whatever title text you've built.

You can probably do at least part of this using a method I use to generate subtitles with a utility called psTitles by Andreas Kiel:

You can create a spreadsheet with three columns, Timecode In, Timecode Out, and Contents. Then you export the spreadsheet as a CSV file, rename it to .stl, and use psTitles to generate TIFF files according to a template. psTitles also exports an XML sequence file. When you import the XML into Premiere, your titles are laid out in a timeline with the appropriate in/out/duration. You can then copy/paste those subs over your edit.

I don't think it's exactly what you're looking for, but it lets you quickly generate and import a large number of text items from a spreadsheet.

Hope that helps!
