[AS-CS5] Copy contents of a cell, paste into another

May 25, 2012 7:41 AM

Hello everyone,


I would like to copy the contents of a cell (which is an anchored object) and paste it to several other cells via AppleScript.

I have no idea where to start.


I have to create an array of several hundred row. The first cell of odd (odd cell?) row must contain the anchored object.


Thank you

    This assumes no header or footer rows, but it should get you started:


    tell application id "com.adobe.InDesign"

              tell table 1 of selection

                        set rowCount to body row count

                        repeat with i from 2 to rowCount

                                  duplicate text 1 of cell 1 of row 1 to end of text 1 of cell 1 of row i

                                  contents of cell 1 of row i

                        end repeat

              end tell

    end tell
