Dynamic table in layout based on data driven pages

Good morning.

I was trying to find a way to add a table to my data driven pages where the table updates based on what features from a layer are visible in the current layout view (based on a strip index.

Specifically, each page will be a 1:200 scale along a 100 mile long linear corridor. I have 322 pages based on my layout/strip index. Each page includes anywhere from 2 to 15 soil type polygons based on my location. I would like to have a table that list the 2, 5 12... however many soil types are shown on each page based on information in the soils attribute table. I would like to list 2 attributes, soil code, and soil type. Ideally automated in some fashion since, as I stated, there will be 322 pages in my finished set.

From my research it looks like this can be done with the Production Mapping extension but this extension is not available to me at the moment and not an option to buy for this one project.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/help.
