We are in the process of migrating from One sever to another. But that is another story i am working as Gis Tech , because of the migration we have a lot of MXD file and we need to see which ones need to be kept. Because the maps take such a long time to load and there are so many i thought that it be better to have a jpeg for each ,map which i can consult with the technical guys , on wheather we need to keep it or not.
I am going into the manually at the moment and then exporting out a Jpeg.
i was wondering if there is a script kicking around for something like this ? Ideally i like the script to look in a folder and any sub folders , then export out the existing layout view as a Jpeg , using the filename of the existing map and save it into a pre defined folder ?
How long would a script like this take . Would it be faster than the time its taking to open the MXD S , which is 3- 5 minutes for each one
Thanks a lot Jak
