Hi all and thank you so much in advance for reading this!
We have a large number of PDF files that we would like to bate stamp all together.
Total about 800,000 pages combined.
Files are stored in about 400 folders, each folder have 3-20 pdfs inside.
Our goal is to have the following:
Page numbers will run from 1-800,000
The bates stamping on each page should be:
The folder name + The PDF file name + the number
How do we do that as a batch process instead of a manual which will take forever....
We use Acrobat PRO DC - I know how to use the bates stamping tool, but I didn't see anyway for the tool to "pull" out the folder name and the file name and add them to the bate stamping as a prefix.
Thanks again guys.
I don't think you will be able to achieve this with Acrobat. First of all, the volume of files you have is too big for it to handle in a single process. You might be able to do it in batches, though. From my experience more than 500 at a time is not likely to work.
In addition, I don't think it's possible to include the file-name or the folder-name in the Bates Numbering command. It can be done using a custom-made script, though.
I don't mind doing it in 500 files at a time, but how do I create a custom-made script?
Or find someone that does that?
You just did... :-)
