Unable to split document - Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended


One of the users in our organization has scanned a file to PDF.
File size - 16 MB
No. of Pages - 34

The user is not able to send the file through email as its bigger than the organization's email size limit. And so she tries to split the document to multiple files. But when splitting, getting error message,

"There is not enough memory to optimize the file"

Any assistance is much appreciated.

Hi the size of a PDF is based on size of images used size of Fonts used etc
 look in a different direction, instead of splitting
