I am using data driven pages to generate a map book of 507 utility districts in our county.  I want to select the current feature on the map page so that it is highlighted in the exported .pdf.  With the .mxd open, the base python code I am using is:

mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")
for pageNum in range(1, mxd.dataDrivenPages.pageCount + 1):
  mxd.dataDrivenPages.currentPageID = pageNum
# Select current feature ?

   print "Exporting page {0} of {1}".format(str(mxd.dataDrivenPages.currentPageID), str(mxd.dataDrivenPages.pageCount))
  arcpy.mapping.ExportToPDF(mxd, r"D:\PCMElee\Utilities\RouteBooks\MapBook_PCU_RouteBooks\RouteBook_Page" + str(pageNum) + ".pdf")

I have looked at a number of posts and the help. So far I not found a way to approach the problem with ArcInfo 10.0

Thank you in advance for your help and direction on this.
