Merge adobe .pdf files using Visual Basic 6.0

Is it possible to merge multiple adobe .pdf files using Visual Basic 6.0 ?

I would like to merge multiple .pdf files by using a string array where each element of the array contains the file path & name of each .pdf  file.

Then using the array, merge all files to one merged .pdf in same directory.

I would purchase a 3rd party .ocx if needed.

I don't see how you can do this.  A PDF file is mostly a graphics file, of embedded graphics, it is not a text file.  How do you read in a "string" of graphics images when they are in the file and not separate files?
