Had this same problem a few years ago; as I recall there were two options. First was to create books that were containers for the content files in all the folders, and do the apply format.
The second was to ping Rick Quatro (I'm 90% sure it was Rick, but it could have been another script wizard) to run up a FrameScript that worked its way through the directory structure and did an apply formats to whatever it found with an .fm extension. I believe the script also did a copy operation at the beginning of the script, so we'd have a backup of the original source to fall back to if necessary. We tried a few manually, then opted for the script solution. Saved so much time it didn't require thinking about. Art Campbell art.campb...@gmail.com "...
