Hi Peter, Even if I agree with you, there will often be (maybe always) a guy for posting such a script for free! If, like you and others, I regularly post some "simple" codes, some scripters post complex ones. Not me since a long time. The only thing I could answer here is about a script I wrote 4 years ago for a client!  Most guys are just interested for free help! … So my post is just for comment! (^/)  The Jedi

Yes. Ask someone to write a script for you for a fee.

larissa probably can, but s/he wants to automate it because there are many items to link.

 

@FRIdNGE -- Well, Michel, if anyone wants to write a script for free, let them. The point is that you can't expect a free script.

I haven't used cross-references in quite a while - I'm not sure if there's a way you can do the cross-reference once - and then use the Grep function to find that same word and replace it with the formatted contents.

 

I'm not sure if that works - and it's Paddy's Day here in Ireland, so I'm not starting up InDesign today.
