Say, we have certificates that we normally mail merge and then print to a printer. We wish to print them to a pdf file. Is there a way to bulk print each page of the merged so that each page of the merge prints to a new pdf document called by a merge field . i.e. each pdf file should be called <name.pdf> ?

I'm looking for a method to do this from within Word and using the print to pdf printer.
Even if I use Adobe 9 - it doesn't let me use the mail merge field to specify the file name?
