Data Driven Page labels - irregular polygons

Hi All,

I have a Mapbook Index Area Polygon shapefile that I am using as my source feature class for data driven pages.  Each mapbook polygon has a name.  I am also trying to use dynamic text to add page numbers of surrounding mapbook polygons in layout view.  I understand that this can be done using the calculate adjacent polygon tool, however the issue is my Mapbook polygons are irregular (the tool only works with regular polygons).  Also, there could be a different number of surrounding mapbook polygons for each polygon.....So different mapbook pages will have a different number of surrounding mapbook labels depending on the page.

Has anyone dealt with anything like this before or know if there is a workaround or a script that can be used?

Thanks!
