Import Text Variables using .csv
Currently the only way I can see to import a list of text variables is via another .indd. It's tedious to manage a ~10,000 text variables (prices in a catalogue) within the text variable window in InDesign. It would be great to manage these variables in Excel and then be able to import the .csv into InDesign, to change the variables instantly.
The import table feature is a good way to do this, but only if the prices are displayed in a table. My prices are all separate text frames.

Until they get that added, here's a script that does this: http://1torial.com/bulk-import-indesign-variables/
