Re: Having trouble with first external data file

I think all you need to do is change OnRecordStart to this:
var XDF = new ExternalDataFileEx("MasterDeparmentsListFinal.txt" );
var found = XDF.FindRecord("Full Name", Field("Department"));
if...

Re: Text List Libaries

What library? In what context?

Do you mean in the MarcomCentral application? If so, please post in the MarcomCentral application forum (http://forums.pti.com/forumdisplay.php?f=15).

Re: Creating numerical lists from tagged data

You said that you got the desired results with "similar" code to what you listed. So my first task in answering the question is figuring out how to recreate something close to what you already had,...

Re: Question with Job Log

Okay, thanks. I can see what's going on now.

That error message is legitimate, because the rule "LargeBackgroundRule" is indeed failing to return a graphic resource.

The thing is, every rule...

Re: Multi line records

This can be done with FP Imposer, without using multi-line records. You need to right-click on the imposition and select "Discard Space and Bleed" as appropriate. Please see the attached example...

Re: Table - how to remove extra blank rows

Yes, the idea here is that you don't need to suppress any table rows. Instead, you only put out the table rows as needed.

The rule can be further simplified/reduced to this, without the need for...

Re: Question with Job Log

Thanks for posting the job. But are you sure this is the same job that generates the message you quoted in your original post?

I don't see any rule named "LargeBackgroundRule" in the job you...

Re: Question with Job Log

I can't see all of the rule, most notably the value you're comparing to after the "begins with" drop-down. Can you convert the rule to JavaScript and post the syntax as text? Posting the other...

Re: Multi line records

I don't think this is a good use case for multi-line records. I think it's just a regular 12-up imposed job. But it's hard to visualize what you're trying to do. Can you post a mock-up of the data...

First of all, instead of making dozens of frames, this kind of job works much better with a table. See the installed Frodo Travel tutorial for a very simple example of a calendar table. Other...

Re: Add variable to .cfg and reference it

Sure, you can access FusionPro.Composition.JobOptions.YourCFGSettingName, or FusionPro.Composition.JobOptions["YourCFGSettingName"]. Of course, this works only in FP Server compositions.

Re: External Data file password protected

No, there's no such capability in FusionPro. An external data file is no different in terms of security than any other resource in your job, including the main data file. In a FusionPro Server...

Re: Varying underline thickness

If the text is on a line by itself, you could put it into a little one-cell table with a bottom border, similar to this example:

Re: datamatrix help

Can you specify the exact versions of FusionPro, Acrobat, and your operating systems?

You probably need to check the "Re-evaluate this rule for every text flow" box.

Yes, "this" code, as in the only code you've posted so far, won't work.

Did you try using FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetNumber instead, as I recommended?

OnCopyfit is invoked at a different time than OnRecordStart.

I'm not sure what you mean by "unless OnCopyFit is used". Copyfitting is either turned on or off in the Overflow Options dialog. Do...
