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?

You and use the open source project pdfcreator

you can set the prdfcreator to create single file automatically to a specific file, with specific name + seq no.
