Can someone look overthis javascript. A gentelmen provided me this information but I do not see it working. I have copy and pasted this information in my JAVA Script Excecute in ADobe 5.0 batch processing menu... I then run it in a specific folder but when I open the PDF file the Bookmarks are still open in various stages. What I want is all bookmarks to snap up and be close (parents only). Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong or whether there is an omission in this javascript.

/* Close all bookmarks */

// Create the global bookmark toggle state global if required.

var cPath = this.path;
if(typeof global.bookmarkToggleState=="undefined")
global.bookmarkToggleState = new Object();

// Toggle the known state of the bookmarks for the active document
if(global.bookmarkToggleState[cPath]==true) //If Bookmarks in Open state
global.bookmarkToggleState[cPath]=false; //Set them to Collapse Bookmarks state

// Perform the toggle
ToggleBookmark(this.bookmarkRoot, 0, global.bookmarkToggleState[cPath]);

// Collapse a bookmark and all its children.
function ToggleBookmark(bm, nLevel, bOpen)
{ = bOpen;
if (bm.children != null)
for (var i = 0; i < bm.children.length; i++)
ToggleBookmark(bm.children[i], nLevel + 1, bOpen);
