In days of old (9.x) there was a vb script to add the path and MXD name to the low left of our map layouts. Also there was a third part tool to add disclaimers. Now in Arc 10 I saw a tool that did that for you as well as adding disclaimers and other repetitive tasks. The problem is I need to know the name of the tool again please.

It's a great tool; however, I am as yet unable to activate the Auto Update function. (I have checked the Auto Update box). Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Probably best to contact Tech Suppoort on this issue as it is a script and not part of the core software. You can get to them through Mapping Center here:
