    Can you run scripts in an INDB file to effect a variable on the pages from the chapters

    73TransAm Level 1

      Good day -

      I have found the Adobe Forums to be very helpful in the past so I thought I would start my scripting question here

       

      If I have individual multi page documents used as chapters in multiple books - is there a way to change a variable on each of the page during output from an InDesign book, .indb file, to a value associated to the book file ?

       

      So if in book 12345 I have chapters A, B, F, and Q.  If in book 12223 I have chapters B,C,F, Q and W.   Can I script the output pages from a book to carry a value on the page of the book, such as the name ?

       

      I would probably be inclined to favor Java but I'm open.

       

      Thanks in advance
