I'm currently extracting personnel records from one large PDF into individual PDF's, and I can't imagine that this can't be automated.
The records I'm processing have the employee's name on the first page, as well as the date that the record was created and their SSN. Unfortunately, the records vary in length from 3 pages to 5, so simply having the first X pages extracted wouldn't do the trick.
Ideally, I'd like to have the functionality for the program to extract consecutive pages that have the same SSN (the SSN is in the same location on all of the pages) and save the file as [LASTNAME FIRSTNAME DATECREATED] using the name listed on the first page of the record.
Thanks in advance for your assistance, and I look forward to learning a thing or two about Acrobat!
Yes, if the data is readable and consistent then this kind of thing can usually be automated using a custom-made script.
I've developed many tools that do this kind of task for my customers and would be happy to have a look at your files and let you know if I think it's doable or not. If you're interested I'll send you my contact details by PM.
I'd be interested in seeing if that's doable, if you wouldn't mind.
