Does exist any java script to use in Adobe Acrobat XI that helps to combine in batch mode several pdf files to one pdf file. And then goes to other Directory and makes the same until the end.

Thanks if someone can help me.

Not really. A script can't read the contents of a folder. If you want to merge files you have to supply to the script their full paths. This can be done from a text file, for example, or from a global variable, if you first run an Action on the folder and save the paths of all the files in it. Then, in a separate command, you can use that information to merge those files to a new document, using app.newDoc and the insertPages method.

The documentation is available in the Acrobat SDK. It's not a simple project if you don't have any experience in this field, I should tell you.

 

If you're interested, I've already created a (paid-for) tool that does just that.
