I have asked this question recently but still havent found the answer. I would be appreciative if anyone knows the best way to do this.
I have these 6 page brochures and there are 50 marketing codes which need to be on first and 6th pages (different codes for each document exported). Rather than manually changing the marketing codes on the 2 pages 50 times (which takes too long) there has to be a easy way to do it. Anyone came across this?
There isn't really a great way to do this directly in ID out of the box. You can use Data Merge, but it will produce a single file with 50 copies of your brochure which you'll then need to deal with. There may be a scripting solution (ask over in InDesign Scripting), or possibly this would be amenable to an XML workflow of some sort, but I don't work with XML so I really can't help with that.
Thanks Peter, I will ask over in InDesign Scripting. I thought it would be a scripting issue.
