    I suggest that you use the script log.
    here is how:
    right-click on icons under menu and choose Command Manager;
    write    script log;
    you will have one result;
    drag the white icon to any palette of your choosing;
    now close Command Manager;
    You can save this layout as startup layout;
    now clic on the white icon.
    you will have the script log window.
    Now go to file---merge choose a file and open
    script log will show     CallCommand(12096); // Merge...

    ET VOILA!

    NB: MergeDocument()  is a c++ command.

    Well, the call to the command is dead obvious, but I don't think this was the advice blackhat was looking for... most question in this forum are beyond mere scripting.

    blackhat, I think it is simply not possible in COFFEE, it's not part of any COFFEE SDK afaik.

    Like many other things this requires the C++ SDK.

    Hope it helps

    There is xref or there is LoadDocument(), so yes it is possible.
    I use it to merge objects using coffee code.

    Thanks lennart , your solution about xref works ok, thanks a lot.

    If someone knows the c++ command or whatever i dont' care if its coffe or c++ or java or php :P if i can just copy paste into a script and it works then welcome. I just want to merge a document into current one by script :P

    Anyway by now the tcastudios Lennart solution about xref works very good, the only bad its when undo it shows each command step, but its ok by now!, thanks  :)

    This forum is not so much a copy&paste; source. It is assumed that you might do a bit of
    research :)
    To add an Undo function is described in the 9.5 COFFEE SDK.
