    InDesign Mail Merge - Create Separate Named PDFs on Export

    UpStyleDesign Level 1

      Hi folks

      Does anyone know of any method or script out there that can do the following?

      Mail merge of say 5,000 records. In the 5,000 records there is a 'Company' field. In that field there are say 400 unique companies. What I would like to do is create a merged InDesign document, that on export can have a file name for each company and only contain that company's records. The result would be 400 named PDFs, rather than one.

      Has anyone else found a way to do this?  The last time I did it I had nearly 200 companies and I manually exported pages from the single PDF - a hideous task!
