Hi Dan, Thanks for your reply. I got the message below rom Mark O'Connor offlist. The book information is stored in each file, which is nice because the attribute values carry over, even if you don't have the book. You have to save the document as MIF and fish out the information, but at least it's there. As far as I can tell, you can't get the information directly from the document with FrameScript or the FDK.

If you don't specify the element name, the first occurrence of the attribute on the page will be used (blank if there are no occurrences). If you specify an element name, it will use the first occurrence on the page: if there are no occurrences it will use the value of the first parent element that uses the attribute (and blank if no parent elements use the attribute). The "book" element information is contained within the file, but you'll need to save the file as mif to find it (look for "DBookElementHierarchy"). I believe that this info is updated by the generate/update command. Cheers, Mark O'C
