Tammy, Rick, Stephen, If I'm following the thread correctly, and that could be a dubious assumption, there appears to be a breakdown between scripting through the FDK and the need, on FrameMaker's part, to update at some point, text insets manually.
Again, if that is something like the case, is it possible to handle the manual keyboard input part, when needed, by having the FrameScript call a keyboard utility to run a macro at the appropriate time to execute the necessary manual keyboard inputs? If so, everything could indeed be scripted.

Stephen, I went through almost the exact same painful process about two weeks ago when updating text insets with conditional text. Rick Quatro worked endlessly, tirelessly and patiently on my behalf writing and rewriting scripts to solve this issue. Ultimately, he decided that the FDK does not invoke a command/"do something" that is invoked/happens when you manually (i.e., use the keyboard) update the inset. I know that this is not the answer that you want to hear, but unfortunately, it appears to be the case and I take Rick as being the definitive authority on scripting for Framemaker!

I have a document in a book (FM 7.2) that contains a large text inset. When I update manually the book, the document contents and those of its text inset (which contains cond. formats) update correctly. My script opens the same book and turns on the correct cond. formats one document at a time and then updates the book. The output is not the same. The text inset does not always update. I've read the command description (UPDATE) and updating the text insets is the automatique behavior. Note that in other cases all works well. Any idea what may be wrong... Thanks for your ideas...
