I have one large pdf file that contains all of my Purchase Orders for the last six months. I would like to somehow split this file into several individual files by Purchase Order. Is this possible using the Adobe SDK in Visual Studio (Visual Basic preferred, though I know a tiny bit of C) ? I'd like to name each file with the PO# found at the top of each page (thus the need for searching)

Thanks - I had seen this come up while I was researching the issue - I downloaded the trial, and it's doing exactly what I want. I wince a little at the $150 price tag, but it's a lot better than spending weeks doing  it by hand.

The ability to edit PDF documents can be useful, however it may not be a straight forward process. Many non-technical people don't realise that a PDF document is basically an image rather than a text file, even if it contains nothing but text. If…
