I am not sure where you want the left and right guides.

Is this any better?

main();
function main(){
var csvFile = File.openDialog("Open Comma-delimited File","comma-delimited(*.csv):*.csv;");

if(outputFolder == null) return;
csvFile.open('r') ;
var csvString = csvFile.read();
csvFile.close();
csvString = csvString.split('\n');
// Change to suit

Hi Paul,

I think, I am only one step behind to achieve the result. Have you find the sample file to see? It you did not able to get the file, please guide me how can I send the sample file.
the code is giving error in:
Error 21: undefined is not an object.
Line 25

Regards,
Sachin

That error might be that you have an error in your csv file.
I have put a check in for that now.
Yes I got the jpg but it does not help as it does not tell me where you want the guides and there is no information to match the csv details.
I will be away for a week now and not sure if I can get access to the internet but will try.

main();
function main(){
var csvFile = File.openDialog("Open Comma-delimited File","comma-delimited(*.csv):*.csv;");

Hi Paul,

Thank you very much for your efforts to doing it very quickly and giving me your precious time.

Yes the error in csv file.
We reached at 99% of result. Right now the guides are in spine +.125 inch, it is ok. I need one more guide at spine +.25 inch both side of spine.
Second document in CMYK, save in .tif, and units in inch, if possible. I have changed preferences > units in inch, but find that 1 pxl differences in each guides position.

Regards,
sachin
