I have written an applescript to loop through all the datasets in an illustrator file.
tell application "Adobe Illustrator" activate import variables document currentDoc from alias XMLfilePath -- save a master ai file for all datasets --'set mysetcount to number of items in fileList repeat with idata from 1 to number of items in fileList display dataset idata of document currentDoc set mynewfile to exportFolder & "chart" & idata & ".ai" as string set myFile to file path of document currentDoc save document currentDoc in file mynewfile as Illustrator close document 1 saving no open myFile end repeat end tell
It works but after the first loop it throws up an error at “display dataset” saying file/folder expected.
any ideas as to solving this problem would be fantastic.
The currentDoc variable holds a link to a chart master file, (this file is saved in CS4.ai format)
