Adobe InDesign CS4 Scripting Phase I.
The goal of the work being done with InDesign is to utilize the Data Merge functionality of InDesign and the, already available, ability to create a new document per record in your data source.
A very simple example of this would be the following:
Given the following data source in excel:
First_Name Last_Name ResultingFileName
George Smith c:\[url removed, login to view]
Mary Lopez c:\[url removed, login to view]
Steve Barns c:\tmp\[url removed, login to view]
Along with a simple two text box InDesign documents, I would perform a standard data merge with First_Name linked to one text box and Last_Name linked to another. By setting the “Record Limits Per Document” to 1, I would end up with three different documents. By default, the documents would be named Untiltled-1, Untiltled-2 and Untitled-3.
Untitled-1 would contain George and Smith. Untitled-2 would contain Mary and Lopez and Untitled-3 would contain Steve and Barns.
At this point in time, I would run the new created script, which would do the following:
Rename Untitled-1 to A45 and/or save Untitled-1 as C:\[url removed, login to view]
Rename Untitled-2 to C99 and/or save Untitled-2 as C:\[url removed, login to view]
Rename Untitled-3 to XM96TR and/or save Untitled-3 as c:\tmp\[url removed, login to view]
I am open to modifying the manner in which the data merge source is created. For example, separating the path and the file name into separate columns. In addition, I am flexible in putting preset information and/or file save types into the data merge document.
