Join multiple pdf documents in vb script

Hi,

I have vb script to join two pdf documents together. Works great. I can't seem to expand the code to join three (or more) pdf docs together. Each pdf is one page.

I have
Dim Doc1
Dim Doc2
Dim Doc3

Set Doc1 = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")
Set Doc2 = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")
Set Doc3 = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")



file1 = Doc1.Open("C:\ods_outputs\alc_daily_summary_tables.pdf")
file2 = Doc2.Open("C:\ods_outputs\discharge destinations.pdf")
file3 = Doc3.Open("C:\ods_outputs\alc_daily_graphs.pdf")
Stack = Doc1.InsertPages(Doc1.GetNumPages - 1, Doc2, Doc2.GetNumPages,0, Doc3, 0, Doc3.GetNumPages,0)

SaveStack = Doc1.Save(1, "C:\Users\LB\Desktop\Daily v2.pdf")

I get error: wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment.
I can't find the meaning of the arguments...If you could explain them, that would help.

Can you help me straighten this out.

Thanks,

Bruce

Looks like you have the wrong number of arguments on the "Doc1.InsertPages" command.

Probably, would be best to take a tiered approach. Merge doc 1 and doc 2 to create doc 3. then merge doc 3 and doc 4 to creat doc 5.

You need two calls,to InsetPages, one to insert the pages from Doc2 into Doc1, and another one to insert the pages from Doc3 into the now modified Doc2.
The parameters for InsertPages are described here:  http://livedocs.adobe.com/acrobat_sdk/9.1/Acrobat9_1_HTMLHelp/IAC_API_OLE_Objects.103.118.html

I'll give it a go. I thought trying that last night... but it seemed "lame".
