    Indesign IDML Files, Changing Stories ID

    Leno

      I currently use Indesign templates converted to IDML files to populate reports for our clients.  The IDML files are populated from external databases using the Stories ID as a reference.  What I am trying to achieve is for each story to be unique across at least 20 IDML files.  Looking through forums and user guides it appears that the Story ID is created automatically when converting from Indd to idml.  As we use the IDML file as a template I have tried manually altering the story ID through the ZIP directory and unfortunately this has not worked.  I was wondering if anyone knows a way to either change the Story ID within IDML or to change the Story within the INDD file so that it will produce a unique ID for each of my templates.
