Need help with difficult program. I'll try to explain as best I can. I have a python script that makes multiple PDFs from an mxd that has data driven pages. Based on the table which has the field Sheet_Id (Sheet 1 of 11 Base Sheets), which is of course information for the data driven pages. I need to write a script that compares the Sheet_ID (Sheet 1 of 11 Base Sheets)  to the actual PDFs that were created. To make sure all pages were created as PDFs. For example, Sheet ID show 11 pages total, so there should be 11 PDFs. I'm not sure if I should program using the table or export the table into a dbf and use that to program. Please help. I have no idea where to start. I hope I explained it alright.
