I have several mxd's that use data driven pages to create an updated mapbook every month. 15-18 mapbooks and 163 pages each. This usually takes me two days and I'd like to automate this. I can export one with python, but more than one is stumping me. I export one using this in Python:
map1 = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("map1 mxd location") map1.dataDrivenPages.exportToPDF(r"folder where I want pdf stored", "RANGE", "1-163","PDF_MULTIPLE_FILES_PAGE_NAME") del map1
It works great for one map, but how can I export map1, map2, map3 etc.. to separate folders with one executed command?
Just to be clear, I know I need to specify each mxd and export location individually. What I'm looking to learn is how to enter all that information at once, double tap my enter button and walk away.
