    [VB] Opening PageMaker layouts with InDesign Server

    Sheldon Zacharias

      I have numerous PageMaker 7.0 layouts that I need to open with a script running on InDesign CS4 Server.  These layouts open correctly using InDesign CS4 Desktop.  InDesign does a conversion on the layout but they do open correctly.  Does anyone know how to open these layouts from a script?

       

      When I attempt to open these layouts, using the Application.Open method, I get the following error:

                Cannot open the file "test.pmd".  Adobe InDesign may not support the file format, a plug-in that supports the file format may be missing.

       

      Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks,

      Sheldon
