    Variable for number of times printed?

      Hey everyone,

       

      I run a small to med size printing company and we send digital and or printed proofs with client/order info on the bottom of the page.

       

      I'm hoping the variable text feature in ID CS4 could somehow add a text box with a three or four digit number, then everytime we print or even open that document the number would go up by one. (I understand it may need adjusted if its number of times opened)

       

      We use this cheap software for printing shipping labels and it has this feature. They call it an "Automatic Counter"

       

       

      We only use one .indd document (As a template) everytime we proof orders. I've read countless Page Numbering and ticket numbering threads, but im not sure if that could be applied to this situation as there is only one page.

       

       

       

      Thanks a million
