When I pull up an overlay I trigger a title. I want the title to pull from a datasource (excel or gsheet). Then when I pull up the next overlay I want it to change the title text to the corresponding entry in the datasource.

I am sorry, I know what I want to do but not sure how. Shortcut, script, trigger???

Let's see if this is right: you want each time the title goes out of overlay you want the title to be ready with the next row of the datasource to be displayed whe going into overlay again (trigger on overlay out - advance datasource row will do that ) or need to explain what is meant by corresponding ?

(not pull a title from a datasource but a title displaying data from a datasource !)

I figured it out.

Named the Media file STORY.1
Named the Title TITLE.1 and set title to pull from datasource line 1

When I trigger the STORY it triggers the TITLE

Same for 2, 3 4....

Now I just update the datasource lines for each show.
