Are there any instructional videos out there that show how to create a map series in arcmap 9.3.1? I am not sure how to set up the layout view. I know how create an index in DSmapper. But, I am not sure how it should look in the lay out view. Do you have any tips?

Thanks.

Mapping Center Answer:

Thre is a developer's sample called DSMapBook that will help you if you are working in 9.3.1, but the best thing to do, if you can, is to migrate to 10.0 because there is new functionality in the core software called Data Driven Pages that offers this functionality -- and there are lots of resources associated with this, including a detailed blog entry here on Mapping Center that includes links to a map template that you can download to learn more about using Data Driven Pages.
