Turn On/Off Data Driven Pages in Script

Hi there,

I'm writing a script to select individual features in a user-defined area, and I need to use data driven pages to print each one with clipping. However I cannot find ANYWHERE the ability to turn on the datadriven pages. Surely there must be a way?  Every item I find when I google seems to assume datadrivenpages is already switched on when a script runs.

Can someone advise?
