This is close, but not exactly what I am looking for.
It doesn't extract the filename from the .csv file I am using for data merge.
I forgot to mention, I need to export each page as a .jpg
I am a bit surprised it doesn't fit your needs. This scripts was specifically designed for exporting files based on a key, ans especially one generated from data merge. If your <<name>> info used a style then you can use it to grab the information and get automatic naming.
As for jpgs, you can turn them to jpg as a a batch sequence thanks to Acrobat
What Kaigong described is exactly what i need to accomplish. I found a script recommended by Loic; but it doesn't seem to name the exported pdf (or jpg) with the data field. If I understand correctly, I need to have the text frame containing the data merge field as a script label, correct? Can you post your script again. Just the script without notes. Thanks in advance
I am trying to do the same thing.
I have an Indesign document with data merge information on it. I can successfully get it to create either a multipage indesign document or PDF.
I now want to name PDF with one of my field names and create single named PDF files.
I tried clicking on the above link be the website has no information on it.
I am using a mac and unfortunately know nothing about scripting.
Many thanks if someone can help.
