Calling variables with pwd protection

Tony Thankyou Sunil for a prompt reply to my last question. Now that I know what I need to do I can progress, I'm on a roll now.
You did invite me to ask as many questions as I like so here goes.
I have browsed the archives of this forum to find as much info on password protection as I could which has given me fuel for thought. So I adopt multi pwd to my ebook, send the customer back to my site to purchase the pwd. Customer returns to activate their ebook but I need to have different variables associated with a given pwd in the way of user information. We end up with one ebook but customised per user. Your thoughts Please.

EBookCompiler If I get you right, you want to make each customer have a book containing there name or something like that.

If you want to do it automatically, the best way is to CHEAT

Use the build series function to build a series of identical books that vary only in the value of one variable, say customerno, or some variable like that

Then on the About Page or whereever use an IFRAME or something to link to your web site

IFRAME SRC="http://www.yoursite.com/script.php?customer=[{customerno}]" ... etc...

Enable the PreProcessor on that file

When you get a new customer, add a record to a database on your site.

123 = John
456 = Bob

And give John, book123.exe, Bob book456.exe etc.

And in script.php write code to retrieve the database record and display it.

Another way: The non-automated way would be to use the Rebrander and individually tailor each ebook, but, that seems like too much work if you have a lot of customers
