Merge PDFs that are still linked to original PDFs

We work in Excel and then print to PDF. Once all the workpapers are printed to PDF, we merge them into one PDF and submit for review. We make corrections/changes in Excel and then print to PDF again. Is there a way to merge the files, or create a portfolio, in a way that we can edit or replace the original PDF files, and have it update in the merged/combined file as well? Currently auditors are either re-merging all the files or going into the Organize settings and replacing specific pages, which is tedious and prone to mistakes. It seemed like the portfolio method was close to what I was looking for, but changes made to the files within the portfolio don't change the original file, and vice versa. It looks like we have Adobe Acrobat Pro version 22.003.20310.0 if that matters and is the version number. I don't know how a forum works, so hopefully I'm in the right place. Thanks!

No, there's no such option in Acrobat. You will have to re-create the file. If the paths you combine are always the same, though, that process can be automated using a script.
