Adding a single image into 100's of already generated indesign files

Help!  I've designed and exported to pdf 100's of indesign documents/datasheets.  I've used a template with styles set up to generate all of these documents.  Come to find I must now add a logo to the same spot on all of the documents.  Is there a way for me to add a logo just once and have it populate to the rest of the documents rathen than me going into each and every document manually?

 

Any help really appreciated!! Thank you!!:)

    Combine all the PDFs into a single document. Use the place multipage PDF script to place all the pages of the PDF. Add the logo to the master page. Export a new PDF.

     

    Or...create an InDesign book out of the INDD files. Add the logo to a master page, sync the master to the book and save.

    Or if you need to edit these files again in the future, add them all to a Book (.indb) update one master page, then Synch only the master pages (NOT NUMBERING or styles) and it should update all the files.

    Yep - I think the Book function should work just fine and get the logo inside all the files you need.

     

    I'd make a duplicate of those files first though - as a backup.
