Find overset text in multiple documents.

Hi, does anyone know of a script which you could point at a folder of documents (and the folders within). It would then ask if you wished to search within text frames or table cells (or both) for overset text, it would then search the documents and at the end produce a text file listing all the documents with overset text within your search parameters?

Sorry, I know that's quite specific.

Thanks

 

Barry

I've realised I can do this with an Indesign book and 'pre-flight'.
