Automation

I recently had to change the palette to 20 PCX files, and have them all incorporate a base palette with the PCX's file existing palette.

I was woundering if there is any way I can automate this the next time I need to do this.
Someway of recording the actions taken, and then applying the same process to the other files automatically.

I see that there's an Automate option under File menu, but I don't have a clue as to how to use it for my requirements.

How can I automatically (programmatically) apply a process peformed on one PCX file to the other 19 PCX files?

In your actions palette create a new action, and hit the record button. Go to Indexed color mode, select custom, load your palette, and OK to apply it. Back in your actions palette hit the stop button. Now go to File>Automate>Batch. Select the action you want to run on the images, the one you just created, and the folder you want to apply it to. There are some other options that are pretty self explanatory. Hit ok and it should run through the whole set and apply that palette.
