Automating a link and Updating pages in Acrobat

Feb 26, 2012 10:10 AM

I've a report created in Microsoft Access and exported as a PDF file. I've also created several links in the PDF document to make it user friendly. There are 5 pages that are updated on a daily basis (Exported from Access and appended to the existing document). I'm new to Acrobat JavaScripting and would like to automate the PDF creation by doing the following;

 

1. Automatically append/update the 5 new PDF pages to the existing document.

2. Automatically create/update links based on a particular text in the updated pages PDF pages.

 

I sincerely appreciate any help I can get on this.

    Define "automatically"... In other words, tasks like this in Acrobat have

    to be initiated manually. You can't use a hot-folder or a scheduled task to

    do this. At least not from within Acrobat...

    Like I said, you can't do that with a script. You will need either an

    external application that will monitor this folder and process the new PDF

    files, or possibly a plugin that runs in Acrobat (not sure about that last

    one, though).
