what platform - PC or MAC ?
Sorry, I should have mentioned that - We work on Mac Version 3.0.4
My apologies, I copied the wrong thing (to many things going on at the moment! lol) the version is 10.4.11, not 3.0.4.

How were they tagged: in labels panel, by XML tags or in some other way?
>Is anything like this available or able to be created?
Certainly, such a script can be created.
A few days ago there was a discussion on replacing file names in text with inline images:

Do you want to revise your old script to process all stories in every document that located in some folder? If so, post it.
They were tagged using a program called Pathways created by a computer programmer the company used at the time. The issues that I was working on were annual Buyers' Guides so they were mainly just listings and inline graphics. The kinds of issues I work on now are monthly issue with various stories and no inline graphics, but display advertisements. And each story is created and laid out in a separate InDesign document. So I would need a script that can search an entire group of documents for file names and/or image boxes instead of just in one story in one document for inline graphics. (sorry if this is confusing).
I currently do not have a script to work from and am looking for something new that can be used to save use the time of placing every ad manually.
Thanks for your help and feedback!
Since image boxes are tagged by a specific program I need to see a sample document to tell you whether these tags can be accessed by script. (email@example.com)
Do you want somebody to write the script for you or to do it yourself?
I can send you a sample document of how we lay out the stories in our books. We would probably need someone to write the script - I do not know how to write scripts.
I'll send over a sample now - my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org (so you know what to look for).
The link is broken now... can you pls give a alternate one if available?
