Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hello,
I've just been given brochure artwork from another company. It's been created in Illustrator. I would like to work with it in Indesign.
Is there a recommended way of importing it so that it doesn't break up strangely?
Thanks!

Just being wishful that there was this amazing tool that i hadn't heard of.
You might want to use this Illustrator script that will rejoin the broken text paths/frames/whatchacallem in Illustrator? in a top-down, left-right order.
It's been a while since I used it, so I don't remember if you'll need the convert point type to area type script as well.
