So close, but I can't figure out how to implement JS in Adobe Bridge

Hello All...

You cannot imagine how thrilled I was to locate Paul's script for taking info from a spreadsheet and automating it's import into the Metadata of photographs!!!

Shaking like a Happy Dog!!!

I'm missing ONE step -- well maybe more, but I made a quick video to explain what I do understand, and where my knowledge is lacking.

It's only 3 minutes long... but if any of you could get me over the hump of how to implement the script in Adobe Bridge, I'd be very grateful!

Hey All,

I'm nibbling my way closer, but still stuck...

1) How do I get a JavaScript that IS loaded, to run?
2) How do I get the script to read a CSV file to match it (key it) with the images already displaying inside of Adobe Bridge...

I may be able to get over the hump if I can get those two questions answered...
Here's a video I made with my progress.

I'm trying to puzzle this out by reading the script, but this isn't really in my Wheelhouse
- and I still don't know how to do it... but I am trying!
Clues seem to be here - but I'm not understanding... but maybe if I can get the script to execute after tuning my CSV, it won't matter.

Help Please!
Robert

inputFile.open('r');
if(win.g15.cb1.value) inputFile.readln();
var datFile=[];
while(!inputFile.eof){
var line = inputFile.readln();
if(line.length > 5) datFile.push(line);
}
inputFile.close();
errorLog.open('w');
errorLog.writeln("Processing :: "+decodeURI(inputFile.fsName) +" Total Files = "+datFile.length+"\r\r");
errorLog.close();
for(var t in datFile){
var str=datFile[t];
if(win.g15.rb2.value){
str= str.split('\t');
}else{
str= str.split(',');
}
if(!win.g15.cb2.value){//Use subfolders
var fileName = new File(Path+"/"+ str.shift());
}else{
var nextFile = str.shift();
for(var g in folders){
var fileName = new File(folders[g] + "/" + nextFile);
if(fileName.exists) break;
}
if(!fileName.exists) fileName = new File(Path + "/" + nextFile);
}
