Working on the price catalog for approximately 2000s items from the excel sheet. Is there a feature that would link InDesign to a spreadsheet or comma delimited file to pull in pricing based on an item number(like vlookup)?

I would look at database plug-ins such as Em software, 65-bit software,, teacup software, and others. They will do what you want and can even hook directly into the main database if desired.

If it's one time job and simple price update - custom script will be much cheaper.
