Extract Pages from PDF file with Acrobat Professional

Hi,

I am just starting a project that I think is going to be a real pain in the #$%%.   I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction or give me a link.  I have a large PDF file containing many 2-page policies.  I have a report of these policy numbers and what page the first page is in the PDF file.  

My task is to create individual PDF files for eacy policy with their unique policy number as the file name.  

I have thousands of polices to extract for input to another system.  Any direction you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks,

josh

Number-1,

Thanks for the comment, these don't directly solve my problem but the same company puts out a spitter that may work with a little vbscripting to liven it up.  The program splits the specified page ranges, which I know is in intervals of 2.  Depending on the naming conventions that are used I may be able to rename the output files to match the file that I have. here is the command line from the program to split out the pages:

"C:\Program Files\AdvancedReliableSoftware\AdvancedCommandLinePdfSplitter\aclpdfsplit.exe"
-sds "C:\InputDirectory" "C:\OutputDirectory" 1-2, 3-4, 4-5, 6-7 

Open in new window


If Ican rename the outputing using my file with the index and usinge VBscript I may be in business, in the mean time any other comments are welcome as this work around does require a purchase and extra work and multiple steps.

Thanks for the comment sounds like you known a bunch about Javascript.  I'm really green on it, I'm going to try (when I get time), to create an Access database to create the batch file commands to split the files.  If that doesn't work I'll try out your example.
