Is it possible to pull content from an outside source?

Sep 12, 2013

I have a client who ideally would like to keep all of the content in one place and then have the various resources (Storyline, user guide, etc.) pull from that one place. The purpose would be to reduce the number of resources that would be updated manually. I have no idea if this is even possible, but a thought I had was to put the content in a database of sorts (or a spreadsheet) and wondered whether a command could be written in a Storyline caption so it would pull content from the database.

For example, in my database cell C19 would have content that reads "To update the properties, right-click the customer's name and select Properties." Then, in Storyline a particular caption would include a command or code that would prompt it to go to the database and pull whatever content is in C19. 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
