Try deleting the script's config file. It's called price_adjuster.txt and sits next to the script file in the Scripts panel. Right-click and select 'Delete'. Then run the script again.

I have not tried/used that script but you could do the following to troubleshoot it.

  • If the script is supposed to work on a document based on some prerequisties. Make sure those prerequisties are met in your test document. Try testing on another document preferably on a document on which it worked in a prior version of InDesign
  • See if there is any try catch block in the code. If so then addin an alert in the catch block to get an alert denoting there was an error and also denoting what it was.
  • If you are a bit enterprising you could try debugging, stepping over the lines of the code to see exactly where it fails and let that known to the community so that we can provide suggestions to resolve it.

Sometimes a script works better relative to the version it was invented with. If version 18 is giving you problems, and it used to work in version 17, then make a new folder under the Scripts folder named "Version 17.0 Scripts" and park your script within that named folder. Then try double-clicking the script under that subfolder and see whether anything succeeds or not. If not, it might be time to reset preferences. Old scripts can be parked in subfolders named as far back as "Version 3.0 Scripts".

The script works now. I ended up updating inDesign to 18.1, and reinstalling the script. I appreciate all the help on this. Thanks!
