Good morning,

First, open Acrobat. Then go to FILE > COMBINE > MERGE FILES INTO SINGLE PDF

A window will pop up in Acrobat where you can add files that will go into your PDF. To do so, click the ADD FILES button at the top left hand corner. MAKE SURE that you have SINGLE PDF (upper right corner) selected.

Once you click the ADD FILES button, you'll be able to navigate to where your files are. To select more than one file, hold down the CONTROL button and then left click on each file you want to include. Once you've selected the files, click the Add Files button.

A list of your selected files should appear in the window now.

Click the COMBINE FILES button (lower right corner).

Acrobat will then process the selected images into one PDF file and ask you to SAVE AS. Navigate to where you want to save your PDF, name it and save it.

Voila!

Let me know if you run into any problems.

Best,

Cynthia

My mistake - I did not see the VB mention for some reason. Here's a link w/ a tutorial that may do what you are looking for using VB:
