    Convert [VB Script] link update script from CS to CS4

    bastiaan7890

      Hi,

       

      I am having problems converting my old VB script to a CS4 version.

      The part that updates the links in my document isn't compatible anymore with CS4.

      I know that CS4 handles linked files differently than previous versions, but I figure out how to make it CS4 compatible.

       

      My script does the following:

      - open InDesign

      - open file

      - update all links (these are +/- 75 tagged text files)

      - save file as EPS file

      - close InDesign file without saving

      - close InDesign application

       

      The script:

       

      rem Open InDesign and File

       

      Set myInDesign = CreateObject("InDesign.Application.CS4")

      Set myDocument = myInDesign.open("C:\files\InDesignDocument.indd",False)

       

      rem Update all links

      For each link in myDocument.Links

      link.Update

      Next

      On error resume next

       

      rem Save file as EPS

      myInDesign.EPSExportPreferences.EPSColor = 1129142603

      myDocument.Export "EPS","C:\export\InDesignDocument.eps"

       

      rem Close document without saving and quit InDesign

      myDocument.Close 1852776480

      myInDesign.Quit 1852776480

       

       

       

       

      Is there someone who can help me with this?

       

      Thanks in advance,
