Re: Grab input file modified date

I don't think there's a way to do this, at least not with Creator. Generally, the underlying OS and its file system are not query-able in a JavaScript rule, except for searching for the existence of...

Re: single column/multi column question

Any Body page text frame (flow) can have its own Overflow conditions, including flowing to new Overflow pages. If that primary Body page text flow is suppressed, then all Overflow pages which may...

Re: single column/multi column question

You're on the right track with the two named overlapping frames. I don't know exactly what's in your data that controls whether "the list in the letter will contain five or less items," but you can...

Re: overflow/duplexing question

You don't need to use an Overflow page at all. Just flow the text directly from a frame on one Body page to a frame on another Body page, and if the text doesn't need the second frame, that second...

Re: Simple If Rule

Sure. You don't even need to use any markup tags or JavaScript. In the Text Editor, type the P.S. and hit tab, then whatever other text or variables go in the rest of the paragraph. The in the...

Post Re: Simple If Rule

I haven't seen your data file, so I can't say whether what you have there is correct, nor whether you would need it for (some unknown set of) other values. These specific questions are hard to...

Re: For Loop Help

That totalRecs variable is simply a number, not an array, so there's nothing to iterate over in a for loop.

I'm not sure exactly what the requirements are that you're trying to meet with this...

Post Re: Output to Folder on Server

Re: Output to Folder on Server

I'm confused a bit by your terminology, and I'm not sure I understand your workflow. Are you saying that you always submit the job to FusionPro Producer?

A couple of problems I notice right off the bat. First, in this code:

Re: Row Shading in Table

The "every two row" pattern does work, starting from the very first row of the table. But that first row is actually the header row. So if you want to start your shading repeats at the first...

Re: Imposition Question

There's a Layout type called "Single Gate Head-to-Head." You could try that. Otherwise, a picture may be worth a thousand words of describing exactly what it is you're trying to accomplish.
