Update dynamic text before exporting

Question asked by clintoffutt on Apr 20, 2015

I have a python script that complies several pdf documents (exported from ArcMap) into a map book.  The first page uses a pdf which is exported from a mxd that has dynamic text for the date.  The script does all the exporting and ordering of pages, so the .mxd never actually opens to update the dynamic text.  Right now, I have to open the title page mxd and close it (to update the dynamic text) and then run the script.  Any way to skip that step to update the dynamic text?

 

Thanks for any help!
