Hi Rolf,

I do not think that there is any magic to this.

Depending on what you want to do, it is just a python looping exercise.

for i in range(1, n ):
    open a new document
    place personalised text/do whatever
    save document

These may also give you pointers;

Do you have more of a specification?
