    Scripting connection of text boxes

    ExoByte0

      First, I appologize if i get the terminology wrong.  I'm not an ID person, i'm helping our designers out by scripting some things.

       

      The current script reads a data file, and off of that info creates a bunch (150+) of pages, then assigns master pages to each of those pages.  Each master page has 3-4 text boxes on them, linked together for text flow (i think those links are called "text threads"?  Searching a forum for "text thread" doesn't work very well ) Currently once that's done the designers need to connect a text thread from the last text box on each page to the first on the next page.  I'm trying to find a way to iterate through the pages and connect the text boxes, but i'm having a hard time finding the terminology and the properties/functions.

       

      Using Javascript, btw.
