I am trying to use  Itextsharp http://itextpdf.com/ to append a pdf file to existing file. It works fine. How can I insert the file that I want to append to a specific page.

Sample

Existing pdf  has 5 pages. I want to append a file to page 3.

Public Sub AppendPDFexisting(ByVal sourceFile As String, ByVal filetoAppend As String, ByVal nuFile As String)
        Dim OriginalDoc As New Doc
        OriginalDoc.Read(sourceFile)
        Dim AppendingPDF As New Doc
        AppendingPDF.Read(filetoAppend)
        OriginalDoc.Append(AppendingPDF)
        AppendingPDF.Dispose()
        OriginalDoc.Save(nuFile)
        OriginalDoc.Dispose()
 
    End Sub

Hi,

I think you may have to extract the existing PDF and recreate with the order you wish to have! I mean you may have to append the file where you need etc.,

Please give a try to PsdSharp.
I have worked with it and I think it is better than iTextSharp (from which derives). It is easier to use and it implements the disposing of objects.
You may find a sample of how to combine 2 documents here.

Regards.
