    Insert date specific text

      Hi!

       

      I have several Indesign templates where I insert the current name of the day. Is there a way to do this automatically? I have a tabbed text file with dates and the names.

       

      Here is an example of the layout. The dates are in MMDD-format.

      0101          Nyårsdagen

      0102     Svea

      0103     Alfred, Alfrida

       

      So, what i want is a script the on January 3 inserts Alfred, Alfrida in my text box.

       

      I use Indesign 5.5 in a Windows 7 environment.

       

      Best regards, Mikael Wiik
