    Batch Data Merge

    Eugene Tyson Adobe Community Professional & MVP

      Hello

       

      Anyone have or know of a script for Batch Processing Data Merges?

       

      I have a lot of files for data merge, they are all setup as follows

       

      Excel 1 linked to InDesign.indd 1

      Excel 2 linked to InDesign.indd 2

      Excel 3 linked to InDesign.indd 3

       

      etc.

       

      With all InDesign files open I'd like a script that can batch convert all open files, using the Export to PDF in the Data Merge panel.

       

      From here, setup export options and all the open InDesign files to a Data Merged PDF with that setting.

       

       

      Anything like that out there?

          This is a paying job - please send me a PM with a quote for writing a script to do the above.

           

          If you need any clarification on the above please ask.

           

          I need it as automated as possible, that is, all the data merge documents are setup and ready to go. I need to automate the batch output to data merged PDFs, either from already open files, or if a folder/subfolders are selected would be my personal preference if possible.

           

          If you require sample files to work with please let me know.
