Does anyone know of a script that will allow you to export Incopy stories from an Indesign Book containing multiple INDD files?
I'm testing one now and will share if I can get it to work.
Meanwhile, do you have a script that will export the stories from one INDD file?

Please refrain from sharing your personal details on a public forum like this one. I am sure Anne will come up with a solution soon.
Really appreciate your work!
Hey there Judy, InDesign scripter extraordinaire Peter Kahrel (Peter Kahrel -- Publishing services, script development, InDesign consultancy ) posted a rough Book > ICML script to our InDesignSecrets.com forum a few years ago. I tested it and asked for tweak, and this morning he obliged. Works great!
You can download it here: http://indesignsecrets.com/downloads/export_book_ICML.jsx.zip
After you install it, open a Book panel (indb file) and double-click the script. It'll ask you where you want the stories exported to. Then it opens each doc in the Book and exports the document page stories (not master page ones) to ICML. It gives them a name that includes the frame ID, so it looks a little weird. You'll need to close the INDD files and save changes yourself.
Thank you, Anne Marie. The script worked like a charm. This will save designers who for various reasons have to use many Indesign files for a single publication lots of time exporting Incopy stories.
