I assume this would require some sort of metacode that would be typed in Word or Excel, then the script or plugin would pick up on it and change as necessary. (??)
What happens if you import the Word document, do the necessary to setup the script, run the script, then export the result to RTF.
If you reimport that RTF, does the script still work? If not, then I'm not sure that your workflow is viable (and given that the hyperlinks that the script depends on can point to other documents, I would be surprised if this kind of round-tripping is possible).
Great idea, Dave. I tried it a couple times and unfortunately your suggestion does not work. I presume that there is not much I can do. Perhaps InCopy would make this work. I'll have to look into it. Thanks for your suggestion.
Why don't you contact Teus directly? His email address is on his website.
Good idea. I just sent him an email. I will post any new information that I get.
Teus has got me set up with a script that works great. With the script, I am able to type a reference to a destination created in InDesign, and when the script runs, it inputs and updates pages numbers for figures, etc. Now I can make as many references to anything I want to in InDesign via Word, and page numbers are input as necessary. If pages are added or removed, or if a figure (destination) is moved, all I have to do is run the script again and all is made current.
I am not at liberty to redistribute the script per Teus' request, but I would like to refer anyone to Teus' web site when he can be reached (http://www.teusdejong.nl/).
