Firstly, I've got "a" solution to my problem but I'm looking for a more elegant one.

I used to use QuarkXpress years ago and there was a key command that would hop you to the next column or to the next linked text box I'm pretty sure that InDesign had the same key command.

You can link (thread) text boxes I'll Illustrator but apart from reducing the depth of each text box to limit the amount of text going into the box the existing key command doesn't work

I'm getting text supplied to me in basically an exel table and I need to copy a column of text and paste it into a series of treaded text boxes so the populate a form

The job has to be done in Illustrator because of customer requirements

I using a mac btw

Any thoughts
