For 500 pages I would manually open the file in Adobe Acrobat (not Reader) and start with the first invoice. Delete all the pages not related to it and save it. Repeat.
There are also tools such as http://www.a-pdf.com/content-splitter/ or http://www.evermap.com/autosplit.asp which will allow you to automate the process. There is discussion at http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/293526-splitting-large-pdf-files-using-multiple-page-ranges.

There are also methods described such as http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16358002/split-pdf-into-separate-files-based-on-text.

Thanks, but I'm not sure why you would not reward points to me for pointing you in the right direction. Points are not counted against you in any way - you can award as many as you like. By closing the question this way I have no incentive to help. Points are all we get here as volunteers - and only if we earn enough points in a given month or year are we also allowed to ask questions to others. I would request you please reconsider awarding the points to me. Thank you.
