Yvan - I have come across this archived discussion - which matches my exact problem and needs -

 

https://discussions.apple.com/message/8943167#8943167

 

You solved the problem with an applescript!

 

I was wondering if you still have this script. I cannot seem to find the referring article where you solved it.

 

In Hope

    Gwyn,

     

    You can find Yvan's scripts here. I may be able to help you to make the contact, so if you have trouble with finding or using the script you are referencing, shoot me an email.

    Thank you Jerry! I might take you up on your kind offer. I'll have a look to see if Yvan's box account contains the script. If not or if it is not exactly what i had in mind I would very much appreciate your help. Again thank you for offering.

    Hi Jerry, (did try emailing but in case you wanted to stay on the forum ill post here also)

     

    Yvan had so many scripts and zip files I could never find the OP's answer!

     

    I am not sure if you read the original post - (https://discussions.apple.com/message/8943167#8943167)

     

    To save you reading - what the OP and myself are trying to do is print the second sheet of the grade book template (with the chart) for all the pupils so that I could give it to them at the end of term. I have 305 pupils at my school and don't want to generate all the reports individually and the OP seemed to think that applescirpt was the way to go - which Yvan created! Somebody else suggested Mailmerge into Pages (and it was apparently in a Pages forum that Yvan solved the problem - so possibly it was a mail merge solution.) Applescript is beyond me - and so here we are! Would it be possible to create a script that would call the pupils individually and create the table and chart - or even just the chart?

     

    I do appreciate your help again (you have help me before a few times in the forum).

    Mail Merge would be a great solution, with one limitation, I think. The problem is that Pages doesn't seem to be able to insert a mail merge field in a chart data array, and I know that it can't make a chart from Data in a Table. If you can do the report without the chart, you're on your way with mail merge.
