Good morning, IDotN:
I'm sorry, I can't see a question in your post. Can you please explain what you want to do a lot more clearly? And what is the precise problem you are encountering?
Anyways I want to import a word document into an InDesign template that has two columns...
one eng, one fra...as I've discovered the only files that can be imported are xml.
This paragraph doesn't make sense. Did you mean to write something else?
So here's my dilema I want to add to my script the abiliy to bypass all that stuff...just make the user browse for the document,
click and bam it's in the left column, do it again, bam in the right. done.
A dilemma is a choice between two alternatives. I don't see the problem here, much less the dilemma?

It's not the case that you can place just XML: you can place doc, rtf, els, pdf, etc. and whatever else.
To have a script bypass manual placement, use your dialog to let the user select the two files, then place the eng file in the eng column by using something like this:
Then place the fra document in the second column.
Thank you Peter
I'll try this out
