    Script for placing images with partial filename

    taruh73671386

      Hi!

       

      I'm seeking for script for placing images to indesign with partial filename. I'm using xml-file to import product data to indesign. In xml I have product number which I would like to use to get the product images to anchored frame. Can do it with exact path/filename.ext.

       

      The challenge is that all images has the product number in filename, but the place and extension varies. For example file name can be 123456.jpg, xxx_123456.tiff, xxx_123456_xxxxx.psd or 123456.png. The beginning and ending of the filename may change and so does this extension. Would like to find a script that uses "search" in filename and finds the right image to link. Does someone have solution for this or any suggestions where to look for the solutions?

       

      Thank you so much for your help!
