I???m trying to automate the process of creating a mapbook index.

I have two layers: streets layer and page index layer. Streets may span across more than one page within the index layer. I???m trying to export a text file with one column containing street names and a second column containing each index page that the corresponding street exists within.


StreetA    ???12,13???
StreetB    ???3,7,9???
StreetC    ???20,21,22,23???

If anybody has any tips for how to create a python script to accomplish this task I would be greatly appreciative
