    Batch Updating Similar Data Merge Documents?

    EStrunz

      Hi all,

       

      I'm working with a series of InDesign data merge files that will be updated periodically at the same time. These documents will be fed by partner CSV files with the data, which will be named using an identical pattern, e.g. One.INDD, One.CSV, Two.INDD, Two.CSV, etc. I'm looking for a way to run the data merges in a batch. Given the power of "actions" with Photoshop and Bridge, I figure that this must be possible using InDesign, but I'm not familiar enough with the program to know how.

       

      Any ideas? All the data merge settings would be identical, with the only difference being the name of the CSV data source for each template.

       

      Many thanks!
