a free method is PDFTK  http://www.pdfhacks.com/pdftk/  

it is a command line app that you can call from VBS with the correct parameters.

    actually wshexec may be better but i cant find my example.  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/qanda/may06/hey0519.mspx


Set oSH = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
 
sFileInput = "C:\EE\test1.pdf"
sFileOutPrefix = "C:\ee\test1pg_%02d.pdf"
'build the comamnd line'
sPDFTK= "C:\Utils\pdftk.exe  " & sFileInput & " output  " & sFileOutPrefix
 
'---optionA-----'
oSH.Run sPDFTK, 1, True  'needs TRUE to wait until extern program has finished'
Set oSH = Nothing
 
 
'---------------OR---------'
'---option B---'
Set objExec = oSh.Exec(sPDFTK) 
   
Do Until objExec.Status > 0    '0=running,1=finished,2=failed'
    Wscript.Sleep 250
Loop 
 
Wscript.Echo objExec.StdOut.ReadAll()   'just for testing'
Set objExec = Nothing
set oSH = nothing

Open in new window

If you want to use VBA, do you have access to Adobe Acrobat (the full version) on the system? If so, you can use VBA, and I can give you some pointers, but I need to know first if you have Acrobat.
