I am using Adobe Aerobat 9 Pro. I am working with a PDF that containes over 1000+ pages. When I perform a search, I need to extract the pages found in the search of the PDF and create a new PDF with the extracted pages. How can it be done without having to extract each found page separately from the numerous other pages found in the search?

This link was inconclusive, but I believe had several suggestions worth trying:

Sorry, but the originator had the question closed and I can't find my notes for that question.

I would first try calling the MS Print Dialog (CNTRL P)from your web browser.  

If that doesn't work, you could try using the MS Common Dialog to select the file, then using the free Adobe Acrobat Viewer control (pdf.ocx) to print.  The acrobat viewer gives you complete control over a PDF file including Printing and Printer Selection. Basically you draw a PDF window in your form just like a picturebox then access the PDF control properties and methods.
for example:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Pdf1.LoadFile ("C:\Program Files\Handspring\User Guide.pdf")
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
    Pdf1.printWithDialog
End Sub
