Too late to help now, but it is for this *exact* reason that I use a variable for the "product name" and other similar "likely-to-change' information inside the document.
Then, using the BookVars tool from Leximation, life is greatly automated to make these kinds of changes! :) As a temporary fix (I don't like this, by the way - since it is better to change the "golden master"), you could edit the PDF and change it in there directly ... headers would be relatively straightforward, but text inside the body might be tricky - particularly if you use justification, for example.

Argghhhh! They changed the product name! And AFTER the book was done,?pdf'd and sent overseas for printing! I put a hold on it, but now have to go back and change the headers to indicate the new model name. Other than opening each book file and changing the header text one file at a time, is there a global method? ********************* Windows Vista FM 8.0 on an HP Pavilion
