    Style Variable


      I have a long document with text variable running headers along page edges. Behind each running header on the Master Pages, there is a black band. I want the color black to change to several different fill colors, when the running header changes, to define different "sections."

      It's one document, no separate chapters or sections, at this point. See attached image.

      Is there a way to tie the fill color of these colored bands to the running header so that it changes when the running header does? I think what I'm looking for is a way to make a variable object style (fill) to be triggered by the running header change. I have no experience writing scripts, but am willing to try.

      Plan B will be to unlink the master items and manually recolor on each page.

      Thanks in advance for any advice.
