Prabudass,<br /><br />If you are just wanting to see if the illustrator file uses spot colors - run the Delete Unused Panel items from the default actions. then view the swatch palette in small or large List View. The color names that have a square containing a gray circle (spot) to the right of their color names are spot colors. <br /><br />The following will get the spot color name of an existing swatch named "Color1" and change it to "Nicks Swatch" and will assign the CMYK values stated.<br /><br />if (app.documents.length > 0){<br />var swatches = app.activeDocument.spots;<br />for(i=0;i<swatches.length;i++){ var currSwatch = swatches[i]; if(currSwatch.name == "Color1")<br />{currSwatch.name = "Nicks Swatch";<br />     var newColor = new CMYKColor(); <br />     newColor.cyan = 35; newColor.magenta = 0; <br />     newColor.yellow = 50; <br />     newColor.black = 0; <br />     currSwatch.color = newColor; } }}<br /><br />When this script has run the swatch palette will not immediately reflect the changes to the swatch name until you double click on a swatch and click OK or Cancel in the Edit Swatch dialog.<br /><br />I hope that I have understood your question correctly and that these responses are helpful.<br /><br />Good Luck<br /><br />Nick
