Hello,
It was suggest I post in the scripting section, hope this is it!
Here is my thread on this forum: p/31599/118629.aspx#118629
Basically trying to have master pages create and form a text link from A - B - B - A - B - B - A - B - B - etc. Allowing me to create a 3 part Carbonless form with the same information barring the one difference of blacked out table data but having the 1400 numbers populate the pages.

Any help would be tremendous!

You need to download an evaluatio copy of xtags. With this Xtension you can inport tagged text an also apply Master Pages.
In your situation it would be as simple as repeating your text 3 time and adding the proper master page code before each instance
You can find a reference to the necessary XPressTags in your QuarkXPress documentation. The doc that comes with xTags will tell you about the "added" tags for master page definition and so on.
The evaluation copy of xTags works the same as the full version on but has a 50 paragraphs limitation (per call)

HTH
