Currently the dynamic text function only returns records from the attribute table selected as the data driven page. However, would it be possible to set the dynamic text to show records from another table, that is related on a specific field?
I have ward data that is set as the data driven page. I have town centre data that also have the ward data within them. I.e. what ward the town centre falls in.
Now i know i can create dynamic text for anything in the ward table due to this being my data driven page. But i cannot set it to say 'Town size' field using my town centre table data. Even if i relate the two tables together it doesnt do anything.
So my idea is simply, either include relates in dynamic text or a popup table that allows you to add dynamic text from another table after specifying the link between the two tables.
p.s. I know it can be done through python scripting.
