(sorry for my english)

 

I am a teacher and i've been struggling with creating my students tests.

 

Suppose i have a indd file with a simple kinematics question like this one:

"The car drove 100 kilometers in 2 hours"

 

I want to create a indd file with something like this:

"The car drove A kilometers in B hours"

 

where A and B comes from an Excel spreadsheet like this one:

Then i want to save sequential PDFs by just changing the row of data on excel so i can have multiple tests each with an unique answer and i can easily check the correct answer on each one.

I tried to use LaTeX but im not progressing as well as i would want and since im already a indesign user it would be great to stay with adoe on this one

 

It it possible to accomplish such task on indesign? maybe with scripts?

Hello,

 

Sorry I don't fully undersand your question, but you take a look at the post below you'll find a script I wrote that exports pdfs with unique filenames using info from the .csv file.
