Ok. Using this....
    Public Overloads Shared Sub ExtractPdfPage(ByVal sourcePdf As String, ByVal pageNumbersToExtract As Integer(), ByVal outPdf As String)
        Dim reader As iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfReader = Nothing
        Dim doc As iTextSharp.text.Document = Nothing
        Dim pdfCpy As iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfCopy = Nothing
        Dim page As iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfImportedPage = Nothing
        Try
            reader = New iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfReader(sourcePdf)
            doc = New iTextSharp.text.Document(reader.GetPageSizeWithRotation(1))
            pdfCpy = New iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfCopy(doc, New IO.FileStream(outPdf, IO.FileMode.Create))
            doc.Open()
            For Each pageNum As Integer In pageNumbersToExtract
                page = pdfCpy.GetImportedPage(reader, pageNum)
                pdfCpy.AddPage(page)
            Next
            doc.Close()
            reader.Close()
        Catch ex As Exception
            Throw ex
        End Try
    End Sub

Open in new window


I can call with this
ExtractPdfPage(f, {2, 3}, strNewFile)
and it works fine.


If I do something like

dim strPages
strPages = "2, 3"
ExtractPdfPage(f, {strPages}, strNewFile)

The file is corrupted. How can I do this so the second method works?
